A second, updated edition of a monograph for the initiated and the uninitiated on the strengths and weaknesses of current bee hive design. The author, John Yates is a much respected beekeeper, a former Chairman of the BBKA Exam Board and retired in 1986 as Chairman of his own consulting engineering company. It is in his professional role as a registered Chartered Engineer that he approaches the many problems associated with beekeeping discussed in this very important monograph which will be welcomed by old and new beekeepers alike. He believes very strongly that the older and experienced beekeepers should give something back to the craft: this is part of his contribution. This title will be of great interest to those who are interested in the tools of the craft.
John Yates wrote a series of monthly articles for the Plymouth Branch of the Devon Beekeepers’ Association during the period August 1989 – October 1992. These were published as a most successful book later in 1992. The volume is full of wise advice and beekeeping insight which while written for the micro-climate around Plymouth can be applied anywhere in Great Britain so long as notice is taken of regional climate which in some parts is 3 or 4 weeks in arrears.
