Get informed before your bees come!
Aside from the above classes, we encourage you to sign up for one of the many Apiary work parties that happen throughout most of the year. Even if you have hives of your own, these parties offer valuable time in bee hives that will most certainly provide a different set of circumstances. One thing you will find out rather quickly is that you are never done learning about honey bees and beekeeping!
