Your local beehive club will be glad to help you. Just type beehive club + your town in a search box.

Well, if you knew of anyone who managed beehives in your area you could always ask them.

Sorry, try Beehives + your town, or tell me where you are, and I will try the searches for you.

I would contact your local cooperative extension and your local beekeepers association. Check their websites, there’s a lot of info there. It’s best to contact a local organization since the needs of bees are much different in different climates and conditions.

This site, Starting a Beehive, should be a help to you.

Perhaps try beekeeping and your city/state.
