Working with the bees to strengthen the stamina and physical condition of beehives in order to pollinate farm crops and therefore to produce honey. A beekeeping job is essential as the beekeeper is the one accountable for the distribution of hives to different yards, for their preparation before production and for their constant supervision to uphold their wellbeing. These tasks are performed when the beekeeper detects any menace to the colonies as a result of diseases, parasites, mites or even due to the climate. This job requires commitment and passion, to prevent any of the plagues previously mentioned, beekeepers tend to medicate the colonies with antibiotics to neutralize any harm to the hives, they also feed the hives with cakes and liquid syrup, and when its required they also replace the old queen with a new one to strengthen the colony for its successful performance. This job rank also requires the basic knowledge as the beekeeper is responsible for determining when the hives can be split, when another box needs to be added or removed, and when the honey should be removed. Most of the time, beekeepers remain outside carrying out all their tasks to keep the bees healthy but they are also in charge of recording the treatment, arrangement, nourishment, or any other pursuit regarding the hives and their colonies.
