To be honest, I did not get into beekeeping for the bees, I got into beekeeping because I wanted the honey to make mead and melomels as described in my book The Basics of Making Homemade Wine and Vinegar. I also wanted the wax to make candles and lip balms.
However, after getting the bees and watching them fly in and out of their hives I found it was peaceful and I began to enjoy the bees for themselves and not what they could give me.
