This is the perfect introduction to discover what's required to get your own beehive, and understand what skills you will need to understand how a bee colony operates from season to season. You will also learn what is required to inspect and maintain your bees, and the challenges our bee hives face in terms of pests like the Varroa mite and wasps. We’ll advise the gear you need to begin, and where to find it at the best price.

We have condensed this course down to cover the important stuff in an easily digestible format.

Once you are hooked, we are happy to help you get you own Hive and Bees this coming Spring, and be there to offer you ongoing support. And of course we have all the equipment to uncap, spin and filter your very own honey, from your very own bees. There is no better feeling, than enjoying your own golden nectar!

Our Community Apiaries are planned to open in Spring 2019. These will be on an easily accessible site(s), where hives owned by local couples and families can be worked on regularly, along with on onsite training sessions with a Buzzstop Beekeeper. This will provide great hands-on learning, in a fun environment, with lots of other new beekeepers.

Important inspections and problem solving can be taken care of by the Buzzstop team, giving you peace of mind and a happy beehive. If you are interested in having a beehive at one of our community apiaries contact or for further information, or just chat to us when you attend your course.
