There may be an existing stack exchange site for discussing beekeeping. I posted a meta message at Pets.SE Are questions about Bees in scope? to get some feedback from users there.
The Beekeeping proposal is only 9 days old and already has 12 followers and 13 questions, it is doing very well for a new proposal. I am not suggesting that the proposal is a duplicate. Just suggesting there are existing venues that might serve to meet the community needs. Another potential venue is Gardening I am not as active there, so can not speak it's full potential.
Later in the beekeeping site proposals growth, identifying why beekeeping should (or should not) have a standalone site will be important. If you feel strongly one way or the other it will be helpful to post an answer here presenting your argument.
