New beekeepers are often advised to join a local beekeeping groups. I think this is the single most useful thing they can do. It provides an invaluable source of information, instruction, advice and assistance.

Often beekeeping clubs have equipment such as an extractor which can be borrowed or rented when necessary.

If there are no California beekeeping associations in your area I strongly advise you to consider starting one. It’s surprising how many people are interested once the word gets around.
