Pick up Beekeeping Catalogs

If you're tempted to keep bees, order a few beekeeping catalogs to get familiar with terms, products and prices.

One of the best tips I can share is pick a company relatively close to your home. Beekeeping equipment is heavy and shipping prices can be daunting.

You can usually order catalogs online through major beekeeping companies like Dadant, Walter T. Kelly and Brushy Mountain.
