This is highly recommended. Keeping bees is a fulfilling experience when done with confidence based on learning, rather than by trial and error which can be off-putting – and costly if you lose your bees. Check with your local beekeeping association for new beekeeper courses. DSBA runs an annual New Beekeepers course which includes lectures, and practical training at a dedicated apiary. The training is delivered by experienced beekeepers who guide you through the basics of beekeeping giving you confidence to manage your bees successfully.
