The importance of the role played by honey bee pests in the world is becoming more recognised each year, not only because of attention given to the pest species, such as the varroa mite and small hive beetle, but also because of the increasing realisation that honey bees are extremely valuable to nature and humanity.
The most up to date and recent book about the Small Hive Beetle highlighting the danger that they pose to honeybees and suggesting some control methods.
For Beekeepers to be able now to rely, for an indefinite number of years to come, upon the regular annual availability, in May and June, of a huge new nectar source, is for them an historic advance. The pattern of working through the beekeeping year is changed by it and a new yearly flow of nectar and honey is in prospect with a yield comparable to that from the heather.
This booklet originally published by the Welsh Beekeepers Association this title is meant for those with two or three hives who wish to make small increases without influencing the eventual honey crop.
This is one of the great beekeeping books of all time. Manley draws on his commercial experience to explain all aspects of beekeeping. This is a book which is a joy to read, you read it, then reread it. As your experience improves you will understand more & more of the value of Manley’s words. Strongly recommended.
This booklet is intended to raise awareness and promote beekeeping, among people and organisations involved in supporting small-scale farming as a successful diversification enterprise that small-scale farmers in rural, urban and urban centres can integrate into their farming systems easily.
