Honey Bee keeping

Even though I have been working as a computer operator and e-commerce professional for the past couple of decades, it is my passion to read books and acquire new skills. I want to attend a skill development course in honey bee keeping. My question is that while honey has its use described in ayurveda as medicine, honey bee keeping involves a few bees being killed while extracting honey from the bee hives. Is it recommended to pursue honey bee keeping as a profession considering a few honey bees are killed in the process of bee keeping?

Moreover as cow is considered a sacred animal, we can't compare a cow and honey bee being killed. Can we assume that whatever bad karma we accumulate while few of the honey bees are killed, it can be wiped away by chanting of Hare Krshna mahamantra and other auspicious acitivites like charity?
