This tip will help begginning beekeepers gain confidence and also alow the bees to be more docile towards you...
I sit near my hive whenever I can after work sometimes just relaxing looking at the garden or reading a book near them ( I sit about 3-4 feet on the front/side of the entrance )It helps you relax and get used to them buzzing around you and makes you alot less nervous for your inspections also as a added bonus I truly believe the bees get used to your smell and will less likely be aggresive.
