Many on here will be delighted to assist myself included. Can you tell us where you are located so we can point you at your local association for a start.

As for doing a course, good idea. Do you need to? Legally no. Should you? Probably yes.

Do some reading? Very good idea. Ask on here by all means but please use the search function first as many of the more obvious questions have already been covered.

Welcome to the world of the honeybee.

Hi
I was newbee myself last year. Let us know your location. I live in Bucks and we have 3 good associations that run winter courses for new beekeepers
