The Beekeeper's Field Guide

A pocket guide to the health and care of bees By David Cramp

This guide is designed for bee keepers to carry with them and use in the apiary and out in the field. It is a diagnostic toot and an aide memoire for the hobbyist and the professional beekeeper, who may know what to do but wilt at times need the information close to hand.

It includes:
• A troubleshooting guide to problems with colonies and queen bees
• A guide to the field diagnosis, treatment and control of diseases
• Seasonal apiary management checklists
• Hive product harvesting checklists
• The beekeeper’s ready reckoner

The second and revised edition of this fully illustrated and handy guide to the apiary brings the science and craft of beekeeping to beekeepers right where they need it – in the field with the bees.

DAVID CRAMP BSc has been a bee keeper for twenty years. He spent a year at the Bee Research Unit at the University of Wales (Cardiff) where he gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Apiculture. He then kept bees in various remote parts of Spain, specialising in organic honey production, before moving to New Zealand in 2004 to manage a four-thousand hive pollination and manuka honey beekeeping operation. He has written extensively for the UK, US and Spanish bee press, as well as editing the on line beekeeping magazine Apis UK. David is also the author of the bestselling and comprehensive A Practical Manual of Beekeeping.
