January is traditionally the time to order honey bees for spring hives, but many bee suppliers are taking orders now! Some are already sold out of certain types. So you might want to get a jump on things and place your order.
Check out what beekeeping supplies you need and find out more about how to order bees. Now's also a great time to pick up a book as a gift for the beekeeper in your life, or for yourself to read up about beekeeping before spring hits. Happy buzzing!
