When he was little, CJ Antonucci used to feed crumbs to the ants in his backyard, watching as word spread of the movable feast and more and more of the six-legged critters arrived. He’d always been fascinated by insects, he says, so it seemed like a natural next step to raise bees himself. That’s how, at 12, CJ became a young beekeeper.
Since we launched Bespoke Bee Supply, we’ve talked to a lot of people about beekeeping, hives and honeybees. Chatting with newcomers and beeks alike is one of the best parts of our job: We get to share our passion of beekeeping for good with people from all walks of life. But the more conversations we have, the more beekeeping myths we hear.
