Hello! My name is Nick.
Hello! My name is Nick. I have been a practical beekeeper for 9 years and a virtual (read armchair) beekeeper for much longer. I have a small apiary in the Rocky Mountains of Northern Colorado, USA. Honeybees and beekeeping have always been major interests in my life.
I enjoy helping others to learn about the only insect in the world actively kept by humans…honeybees. I also enjoy building my own beehives, managing my apiary and helping other people keep bees. For me, beekeeping is a way of life.
How this site got started
In the past couple of years, I have noticed an increase of interest in bees and beekeeping. I have received phone calls and emails from people who wanted to naturally keep bees on their property, but did not have good resources to get started.
After discovering the Warre Hive in the Fall of 2007, I knew that this hive would be perfect for those who wanted to keep a few honeybee colonies simply and in a sustainable manner. So, I decided to create The Bee Space in order to provide a resource for natural and sustainable beekeeping.
Enjoy the site!
