How to keep honey bees
WARNING: There is a push to make beekeeping appear practically hands free. New beekeepers are failing to implement best management practices. I want to be your mentor. I am currently accepting positions to mentor a limited number of beekeepers. You'll have access to my personal cell phone and private email. And you can send me videos or pictures of your hive when it just doesn't seem right or you don't know what's going on. You'll also receive 4 new instructional videos from me and a weekly tip of what you should be doing. Click here to see if spots are still available.
1. Order Your bees between starting Jan1. Bees usually come in a 3 lb package with a mated queen in her separate cage.
2. Order Your beekeeping supplies and equipment at any time but allow enough time to receive your beekeeping supplies before your bees arrive, we suggest 5 - 6 weeks before you expect your bees to arrive.
3. Take a beekeeping class in your area. We offer classes year round and online lessons as well.
