Most beekeepers produce raw material to sell. Honey is the most valuable, so producers try to keep the strongest bee colonies in areas with dense nectar sources.

Among the materials used by the beekeeper, in addition to the hives, the smoker, used to scare away the bees, the beekeeper unbeing brush, a type of brush to remove gently the bees from the honeycombs, the honey extractor, and the uncapping knife.

Most beekeepers produce raw material to sell. Honey is the most valuable, so producers try to keep the strongest bee colonies in areas with dense nectar sources. They produce and sell liquid honey, extracted, and sometimes honeycomb. Beekeepers can sell these raw materials independently or through cooperatives or distributors. Wax, pollen, royal jelly, and propolis can also be a significant source of income. Taiwanese beekeepers, for example, export tons of royal jelly, the highly nutritious food supplement with which the queen bee is fed. Some modern beekeepers keep their hives just for the production of wax. This is collected at the same time as the honey and separated for later sale.

Some beekeepers provide a "pollination service" to other farmers. This type of beekeepers do not produce honey to sell, they move the hives at night so that fruit trees and other plants have enough pollinating insects and thus achieve higher production levels.

Queen breeders are specialized beekeepers in raising queen bees for other beekeepers. Breeders maintain a selection with superior qualities and tend to raise their bees in regions with early springs. These beekeepers usually provide extra bees to beekeepers (honey producers, pollinators or amateur beekeepers) who want to start new operations or expand their farms. They use various methods for rearing queens, in some, the larvae are directly manipulated and there are other methods such as the Karl Jenter Kit System or some copies of this where the larvae are not manipulated but only the plastic cells where the queen laid her eggs.
