A well-structured questionnaire was used to elicit information from randomly selected 148 bee- keeping trainees from Osun State based on the list made available by the LFATS management.

Subsequently, the study revealed that the majority (79.5 %) of the trainees are male with mean age, experience and household size of 37 years, 8 years and 6 persons respectively. The net returns from bee-keeping enterprise were 230, 002.54 in the area with a return on investment of 2.64 indicating that 1 investment made in bee-keeping returns 2.64 to the investor. Furthermore, the study revealed that sex (p>0.046), age (p>0.040) and level of education (p>0.035) were the socioeconomic variables that influence net returns from the bee-keeping enterprise. This therefore calls for the policymakers and management of Leventis Foundation Agricultural Training School (LFATS), Osun State, Nigeria to pay critical attention to the trainees sex, age and level of education during the selection process for the training.
