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 South Dakota 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.

    We recently moved to Sioux Falls area in SD from WA state. We had to leave our honey bees behind but would like to begin again in the spring. Where can hives be purchased in SD? Thank you.

    My son-in-law has a garden yearly. I wondered what a bee influence would be for his land- small forest, apple trees, plum trees, Chokecherry tree and Large patch for garden. My daughter has plants to attract butterflys. Monarch come thru yearly to their old trees.
    Who can answer some inquiries?
    Thanks, Vickey

      Hi Victoria

      I’m sure that a hive or two of bees would have a very positive impact on the size of your son-in-law’s harvest. If you or he doesn’t want to keep bees, you might try contacting local beekeepers or clubs tp ask questions and to suggest they might like to keep some hives on the property.
