Thats the buzz from beekeeper and breeder Allen Larson, who runs getbees.net, where he sells beehives to folks hoping to get their gardens looking good again.
A beehive sets buyers back $400-$620, but comes with personal maintenance service for life, which means Larson himself will come handle the buzzers.
Larson says that owning a beehive can do wonders for the world because the bees from one hive pollinate more than two miles of surrounding area, providing lovely flowers and plentiful fruits and veggies in peoples gardens.
Along with that, hive owners are guaranteed 24 pounds of honey made by their bees per year, which is why most customers get into the beehive biz anyway.
Though the threat of getting a bee sting is real especially since each hive comes with 50-80,000 bees Larson says his honeybees are usually friendly.
However, investing in a beekeeper suit is not a bad idea.
