One of my bee mentors John Talbert recently told a group of beekeepers to be wary of the information you find on the internet, and rightly so. John has also been known to say that when you have a question ask three beekeepers, you’ll get three different answers, then pick the one (or mix of answers) that best fits your situation [paraphrased]. So, I sure hope you find not only my information about bees educational and possibly entertaining, but all of the information you find on the BZB website.
I find that beekeeping is a blast. Bees are extremely interesting insects – and there are a few things every new beekeeper needs to do to prepare – not the long list, the short list – just to get your pulse up a bit.
- Get over ‘the buzzzzz’
- Make your plan
- Become a sponge
- Get your equipment
- Enjoy the honey flow…
There’s more… maybe less… it all depends on what you want out of bees. Just like a plant that you let produce what it will or you can diligently nurture and care for the plant to maximize production, you can do so with bees.
