Now is the time of year that new beekeepers are taking courses from their local clubs.  I remember when I took the course several years ago, there were many people there who had no experience keeping bees.  I was lucky, I had already worked with bees and my experience with my great uncle's apiary in Carroll County is what made me want to have my own hives.  

I took a few minutes to think about what were some of the important things people told me when I was just getting started, or that I've learned over the years, that I think it would be good for all new beekeepers to hear.  They might not be the most important, but definitely good to know.
