I'm a new beekeeper too.
Collecting a swarm is the most incredible experience and I recommend it!
Be organised, read up about it, what you need to bring with you... Sort

I am new to beekeeping. I did a beginners course and have a hive in my backyard but no bees yet. Is there a club in Rotorua or maybe Pyes Pa area in Tauranga? I am keen to collect a swarm but have never done it before and don't really know where to start...
