How to become a beekeeper

The beginner should first of all find out if he/she is in any way allergic to bee stings and if so not to attempt acquiring bees or taking up beekeeping without seeking medical advice. When the urge to keep bees first hits you, the impulse is to go out and buy a hive straight away, and learn by doing in isolation - this is not the best approach. The best first step is to join your local branch of the Beekeepers' Association, preferably in the Autumn. You can then attend their classes for beginners and programme of winter lectures which are held frequently and cover all aspects of beekeeping. There are 45 such Associations scattered throughout the country. Other benefits of membership include the use of a library - video and book, plenty of friendly advice and you are kept up to date with developments within the craft.
