Time to Order Bees!

By January 26, 2013

Follow me on:


It's January -- not a bad time of year to order honey bees for the spring. Although the season seems far away, this is the best time to place orders for equipment, too. Order now, before the apiaries get swamped, and before they sell out! Demand is soaring for starter sets of package bees that the beginning beekeeper can install into a hive, because so many people are wading into beekeeping these days. It's a rapidly growing hobby.

So, read up on how to keep bees, the supplies you'll need, and where to buy them, and happy beekeeping!
