Beekeeping is a tenacious undertaking if one does not prepare their apiary properly. Read honeybee information regularly and engage in conversation with other beekeepers as much as possible. A local beekeepers club is great places to gain knowledge, watch, and work with more experienced beekeepers. For those beekeepers in Haywood County North Carolina, I invite you to review the Haywood County Beekeepers Chapter website for more information and the opportunity to attend one of our meetings.
Some recommended steps for new beekeepers

A revitalization is going on within many honeybee communities as beekeepers worldwide are making the public more aware of the vanishing number of honeybee colonies and the various reasons for such declines. You do not need years of experience to become a beekeeper. I have found that one major key to a successful apiary is to have the willingness to educate oneself before you ever buy the first package of honeybees. Read books on beekeeping, bee journals, reputable web articles, and videos as possible and you will soon know what method of education best fits your beekeeping attitude. As a certified beekeeper and webmaster for the Haywood County Beekeepers Chapter in Waynesville, North Carolina, it is rewarding to experience the interest in honeybees during the first year.
In addition, lifetime membership with the North Carolina Beekeepers Association also has its rewards. Individuals wanting to improve the environment within their local community and for the possibly of making an income while beekeeping will find solace in this guide. Every beekeeper needs the insight of more experienced beekeepers and joining a local bee club is one effective way of gaining greater knowledge. You will never stop learning about honeybees and apiary management, regardless of your beekeeping experience.
