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. It is often said that if you ask three beekeepers a question, you'll get at least four opinions, a beekeeping club is a great place to find, and compare those opinions. Most beekeepers are very enthusiastic about what they do and are more than happy to help people just starting out by passing on their years of hard-won experience. Even after more than 20 years of beekeeping I almost always learn something new and useful at a bee meeting.

Usually beekeeping clubs have equipment such as an extractor which can be borrowed or rented when necessary. Even if the club itself doesn't own any equipment, there is often a member who is prepared to lend you something. Often there will be talks and demonstrations which will help clarify some of the confusing things one reads about.

I remember reading, when I first started, about how to catch a swarm using a cardboard box. I was very puzzled, the instructions said to shake the bees off a branch into a box, then turn it over and place the box on the ground. I assumed, wrongly, that the bees would all fall out, but they really don't. I have explained how to do this and then demonstrated this to people, you can see the look of understanding on their faces when they see that the bees cling onto the underside of the box, and crawl upwards on any vertical surface.

You will encounter 'crusty' know-it all beekeepers, I'm planning to be one myself, don't be put off there are all sorts of people in a bee club and you're bound to find someone who you can get along with.

If there are no Texas 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.
