Preparing To Learn About Honey Bees And Beekeeping
* Go to your local library and explore what books they have about beekeeping and honeybees.
* You can also check out the Book Store available on this web site. 'Beginning Beekeeping' is our best seller for those who know little about beekeeping or about honey bees.
* Consider subscribing to "Bee Culture", the top beekeeping magazine in the US. Click here. I just found out today, January 29th that the "Bee Culture" magazine is now being sold in Wal Mart in their magazine section. Check it out !!
* Another excellent way of learning is to obtain a video on learning about beekeeping that you can watch and rewatch in a liesurely manner in your own home.
* Ask around in the area where you live if there are any nearby beekeepers, seek them out and introduce yourself. Local Police usually know a beekeeper or two. Most beekeepers love to help out people who are interested in the hobby. Also ask if there is a Beekeeping Association in the area that you could join. Many associations conduct new beekeeper classes in the winter.
* Use your favorite search engine to locate one of the many excellent web sites on the web. Check out our other web site Bees-Online - an educational website.
* Honey Bees need a good nearby source of water. This can be a natural source of water that may be in your yard or close by, such as a stream. If there is not a handy source of water then you can put out a shallow pan with pebbles in it to rpovide the bees something to stand on while drinking. Or you can visit our Water Garden Blog for another idea that you may enjoy creating yourself to enhance your yard !
