Stay on top of it...
Keeping up with what is going on in your hives is almost as hard as staying on top of the goings on around town in the beekeeping community. We play with bees, catch swarms, chat with folks about the benefits and fun of beekeeping and we find ways to enjoy a hobby that is often called a little crazy. It's hard to stay on top of it all.
What am I supposed to be doing? "X" is happening in my hives! And when should I be doing _____? I felt lost when I first started like I was constantly behind the curve. Heck half the time I still feel like that =o). The bees do what they want, and I try to react or take action before they do the next big thing. My point is, if you feel lost in your beekeeping journey, it's time to phone a friend. Look for us on Facebook @ Southern Maryland Beekeeping and post your query with pictures if you have them. There are several thousand people on the site and many willing to offer help and or information as well as mentorship and guidance.
We might all do things a little different, but overall, our goal is to support beekeepers and to help keep bees alive in a healthy happy way. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Come to a meeting, reach out to us by email. We will do the best we can to help those in the region who feel like they need it and are willing to learn.
