We have an excellent beekeepers club in this area. We are happy to educate. You can get more information on our site and check us out by coming to our meeting next Wednesday. We meet once a month typically. This time it will be at the Napanee Public library at 6:00PM.
Now is the time of year to get started. We expect a lot of colony losses due to the bad winter and CCD. So you should order your bees now (if they are not already sold out) and bone up on everything before they arrive in mid-late April. Check with Danny Slabaugh in Napanee on getting bees as well as other equipment.
Our newsletter (The bee Line) is on the site too; along with past issue (Lots of good stuff in there). Danny's contact info is always in the Bee Line.
