The PerfectBee 3-Step plan to your first beehive walks you from your initial curiosity, through the purchase and installation of your beehive (and bees!) all the way to success as a beekeeper, with a healthy beehive.
One of the joys of beekeeping is that the learning never stops. Beekeepers with 40 years of experience will tell you that they learn something new from their bees every year. This is, of course, much of the attraction of beekeeping, amongst many other benefits.
But it's important to have a plan and PerfectBee is happy to present the following high-level checklist, easing you through each step. We link to important content and guides throughout and the intent is to provide an initial "roadmap" as you start down the path towards becoming a successful beekeeper.
