Start with a beekeeping course. Then get a copy of the bee book of beekeeping in South Africa. Then all you need is the equipment and some bees with a suitable place to keep them.
Both hobbyist and professional beekeepers will find the bee book enhances their operation. Many topics are covered and well described and explained. There a number of colour photographs and diagrams with great detail. There is a wealth of information covered in its 288 pages, cover-to-cover.
We suggest the bee book should be mandatory for every Beekeeper to purchase when they register with SABIO.
