50 Backyard Beekeeping Resources for Beginners

Don’t you hate how you feel when you have no idea of what you’re doing?

I do. It’s incredibly frustrating.

Before I began backyard beekeeping, I knew I would experience that feeling a lot unless I had help. I enrolled in bee school, (which was awesome!), but once my bees arrived, I had forgotten a lot of what we discussed in class. Thankfully, there are so many resources for beekeepers out there! Along with a beekeeper mentor, backyard beekeeping resources like organizations, books, websites and blogs can really save a “newbee” beekeeper.

Here are some of my favorite resources:
