Know the full potential of the hive: how beekeepers can increase their income through the production of other beehive products

We would like to invite you to the next moderated discussion “Know the full potential of the hive: how beekeepers can increase their income through the production of other beehive products”. This will be a discussion about the less known beehive products propolis, beebread and bee larvae and about how beekeepers can increase their income and health through the production and use of these beehive products.

The discussion will be moderated by Antonio Couto, International Apitherapy Consultant and Natural Therapist, expert in bee venom therapy (BVT).  Antonio has been working with beehive products since 2000. In his private practice in Portugal he uses Apitherapy and bee venom therapy to deal with health issues. He is also traveling the world to teach and promote apitherapy.  Antonio is president of the Portuguese Apitherapy Association and co-founder of the ONG “Bees For Life” (Apitherapists without borders).  He also invented devices and instruments for Micro Api-punture (Bee Venom Therapy).

Antonio will be moderating the discussion from 27 November to 31 December 2017. During this time, he will share relevant practical information and knowledge with all people interested in beekeeping and apitherapy in developing countries so that they can increase their income from beekeeping and use the beehive products to enhance their health.   You will learn about propolis, beebread and bee larvae and discover how to produce them, extract them from the hive, store them and use these products for improved health.

If you are curious and want to learn already a bit about the health benefits of these and other beehive products, you can read the TECA discussion on Apitherapy: http://teca.fao.org/discussion/apitherapy
