Nuclei. Management. Wintering By Lawrence John Connor
Popular lecturer and Bee Culture author Dr. Larry Connor examines essential aspects of making new bee colonies, from swarms or packages, purchased hives or nuclei. He looks at the impact of modern life on beekeeping, and the changes every beekeeper faced in light of Varroa mites and African bees. He suggests that for many beekeepers, the option of wintering nucleus colonies provides a source of fresh bees locally acclimatised queens, replacement hives, colonies for sale. Drawing on the concepts of Lanstroth, Doolitle and Brother Adam, the author distills his unique academic and commercial experience with bees, beekeeping, queen rearing and colony management into a concise and thought-provoking book.
The second edition adds more methods of making increase colonies and includes recent developments in the science of bees biology. The second edition is larger than its predecessor and in full colour.
