In 1895 there was, in the American Bee Journal, a department of “Questions and Answers,” with Doctor C. C. Miller in charge, the object being to give information to readers on special subjects, perplexing to the beekeeper, and not specifically covered by the different bee literature. In the twenty-two years that Doctor Miller has answered these queries of subscribers … almost every subject in beekeeping has been touched. His wide experience, his inimitable style, and the clearness with which he writes have made these answers invaluable. The present volume is a compilation of a thousand questions, culled out of many thousands and arranged in alphabetical order for convenience. Its object is not to supplant existing text-books on beekeeping, but rather to supplement them.
Is there a funny side to beekeeping? Most literature on the subject wags a solemn finger and instructs. Molony’s articles aren’t like that. They’re about various interventions in his beekeeping life – by his wife, by other people who garden near his bees; by being a village beekeeper at the behest of all and sundry. And they’re about being by the sea. Keeping his hives on an allotment that looks out across Lyme Bay brings out its own angle on beekeeping. Having a wife with her own views on bees produces another angle. Notes from a Clifftop Apiary is a light-hearted portrait of beekeeping up against other pressures of the real world: on the one side there’s the sea, on the other there are people. It makes a colourful mix.
Honey Bee Pests, Predators & Diseases – now in its third edition is both a scientific reference and a practical guide for beekeepers world-wide. The answers to the causes and the cures of a thousand problems may be found within its pages.
The first English translation of an updated German title first published over 20 years ago and since then there have been both Czech and Slovak editions. It explains the best methods for harvesting and gives a wide range of recipes, many of which have been used as folk medicines in Eastern Europe.
A must for any beekeeper and nearly as essential as an orange in the stocking at the bottom of the bed at Christmas. First published in 1984, this Annual, updated yearly, includes a listing of beekeeping associations, a diary and a large editorial sections of interesting articles.
