    I would start by contacting a local beekeeper's association:

    http://www.ohiostatebeekeepers.org/a...-associations/

    It looks like there are several in your area. Each has folks willing to help and teach. You could also look at beekeeping equipment stores within driving distance. Also, read read read. There are great resources on beekeeping forums, youtube, and beekeeping supply store web pages. Here's an example:

    Good luck!

    I agree go to the local bee keepers group. Find a mentor there. All so here at least venders come to some of the meetings and you can buy from them. All the dealers on this web site are all good. So mail order is a good way to go. Starter kits are OK but get someone to tell you what you need and start with the most basic. Starting is not cheap but the fun is well worth it.

    You might also want to try Jamie with Blue Sky Bee Supply ( blueskybeesupply.com ). He's in Ohio too. Not sure how far he is from you.

    I sell Nucleus colonies every year in Southern Ohio. Dadant in Frankfort, Kentucky is probably about a two hour drive from you. Barry Conrads in Canal Winchester is probably about the same.
