I am new to the hobby of beekeeping and don't own any bees yet. Any tips?
Hello and welcome!
READ, READ, READ. Check your local library for books & videos. Go thru the tutorials on the main Beemaster page. Use the 'search' function on this forum to read discussions on various topics.
Join a local beekeeping club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beeks. Plus, they often offer beginning beekeeping classes and support for new beekeepers.http://www.virginiabeekeepers.org/association_map.htm
