Information Guides

In association with Bridgend Beekeepers, we have produced a series of four leaflets by way of an introduction to bees and beekeeping, each of which is available to download:

Become a Beekeeper

Make Space for Bees

Bees Are Fantastic (for children)

Garden Plants for Bees

In addition to these introductory leaflets, we shall be producing on these pages helpful beekeeping guides. Some are reproduced from other sources and others will be original work from our own contributors. The list will grow over time. When using these guides, remember that in beekeeping nothing is ever "black or white". Beekeepers will have their own preferred methods depending upon their circumstances and resources. It's up to you to "cherry pick" ideas and methods to see what works best for you.
