What do I need to know about beekeeping?

Updated: Feb 7

Welcome to the world of beekeeping!

If you haven't purchased your woodenware yet, I would highly suggest purchasing the overwintered single deep colony. It's like giving your bees a fully furnished home. You will still need to purchase additional equipment, but it cuts down the list down by 3/4. I can advise you on what additional items , just CONTACT ME.

Great idea to start with two colonies! This allows you to borrow resources from one another as needed. Especially if things go wrong. It also provides a more objective view of what colonies look like. When you only have one, all you know is what that colony looks like.

I would also suggest taking the overwintering class I offer. It's a two part class. The first part is in August and the second is in November. This will teach you how to successfully overwinter your colonies, a skill that sounds easy, but many hobby beekeepers struggle with and go on to loose their colonies every winter. Go to my CLASSES SECTION!

Thank you,
