    Good and bad. Not all honey is the same, for example.

    Is being a bee keeper based? is it hard to harvest honey and keep bees, if I'm starting from nothing with no knowledge how long would it take me to make friends with some bees and have them as bros?

      >Is being a bee keeper based?
      Of course it is, look at that motherfricker. He doesn't afraid of anything.
      >is it hard to harvest honey
      Depends which kind of honey. Specific types of honey are almost impossible to do unless you live in the mountains, as you need specific flowers to bloom at the exact same time while others aren't around.
      >and keep bees
      Keeping bees becomes more and more difficult due to climate change, invasive species (bees and parasites) and pesticide usage.

      Bees are a lot like people. Most of them are very nice and relaxed but some exceptions have a temper and throw a tantrum. Some species are easier than others. Best you can do is to look for an experienced beekeeper near you.

      I'd be worried about getting used to being stung all the time more then anything.
      Something about their eyes look ominous and threatening.

      It seems pretty fun, I have been reading a lot of books about it recently and would like to buy or make my own hive this year and get bees next spring.
      There are many books you can read about it and even local clubs that you can join to get a feel for it without needing to get your own beehive etc.

      The only time I see people recommending a flow hive is when you want to harvest specific honey, so perhaps it could be used here too.
      Also you can just put a super on your hive with a queen excluder to harvest specific types of nectar depending on what's flowering in your area.
      An example of that would be dumping on on the hive when thistles are blooming in the middle of summer.

      You should totally become a beekeeper. I did it on a whim at 15 and me and my dad learned pretty much on our own.
      It's too late in the season for you to start from square 1 this year, but it's worth looking into.
      Look up if there's any beekeeping supply stores near you. The one around here makes it super easy. You order your bees ahead of time and pick them up from there on the scheduled dates. Even sell kits with everything you need to start up a colony (box, frames, smoker maybe etc.)
      You'll want an adequate place outdoors to put the box raised off the ground in a lot of sunlight. You're supposed to have a hive stand, but me and my dad used an old table we weighed the bottom down with cinder blocks.
      As long as you have the basics and get the bees in your hive, they'll know what to do and will make do. It's not hard to harvest the honey either.
      I'm a filthy casual beekeeper and it's a lot of fun. If you want to take it more seriously and in depth you can, but you can successfully have colonies that survive and produce honey really easily. I'm planning to make mead this year with whatever I can harvest (can't take too much in this colony's first year)

    I wouldn't say it's GOOD for you, it's basically just sugar paste. But it's completely natural (if you get natural honey) and it's a good way to sweeten things without giving yourself cancer.

    Science says its sugar and bee enzymes. Ancient wisdom says it cures everything and is the key to health and long life. I know which one I believe

    Good honey is amazing for you. Drinking a teaspoon of honey mixed into a glass of good quality milk daily is really good on every level. When I used to drink a cup of that every morning instead of coffee I would always feel so energised. It made me want to do physical exercise and it seemed to make my thinking clearer as well. This only works with good honey though, if you can't get good honey there's no point, you're just making sugar milk, it doesn't taste that great and doesn't have any of the benefits I saw with quality honey.

    Invert sugar syrup is cheaper and better for you than any local raw honey. Guaranteed equal parts fructose to glucose means easy to digest. Pure as it gets, no possible allergenic substances. Only reason you might eat honey is for the taste of the plants. Healthwise though, go with white sugar. To the body its all the same. The healing powers attributed to honey are due to an increase in caloric intake from the easiest to digest energy substrate the body can use.

          you state sugar is healthier for you than honey and that your body can't tell the difference between two substances. Just stop talking

            Honey and syrup are both mixtures of free fructose and glucose in water. Honey additional has traces of pollen and bee specific enzymes which are useless for humans. Practically the same, except the glucose to fructose ratio in honey is highly variable and you may end up with say 60% fructose. Both foods will get taken up by GLUT5 transporter in the small intestine. In the presence of glucose, fructose uptake improves substantially. White sugar guarantees G:F in equal parts avoiding the problems of any excess fructose going unabsorbed. The body sees all sugars as the same thing. Nothing wrong with my post, all facts.

    No. It's just sugar syrup, vomited by bees, made from mystery sources such as trash cans and aphid anus juice.

    What's better nature sugar syrup?

    Honey?
    Has (questionably medicinal?) bee enzymes.
    Gets unique flavor from flower pollen.
    Antibacterial properties.

    Maple Syrup?
    Gets unique flavor from the minerals in the soil the sugar maples grew in.
    Gotta boil sap for hours to make it, bacteria thoroughly dead.
