How to get started in beekeeping

 

Game Plan

  • Read up on beekeeping and make contact with other beekeepers. Find a mentor if you can. Hint: join the APK!
  • Order your bees 
  • Talk to your beekeeping supplier and get your woodenware and other essentials before your bees arrive.
  • If you need to, prepare the location where your hives will be set up.
  • Install your bees when they arrive  – if you have a helper, so much the better.
  • Enjoy your bees over summer and prepare for getting them through the coming winter.
  • In fall you will be into feeding and worrying about the well-being of your bees – congratulations – you are a beekeeper.
