An Efficient Production of Bee Colonies is written by Flemming B. Thorsen, a commercial bee-keeper who concentrates on breeding pure Danish Buckfast bees.
There are no pure English Buckfast bees in Denmark anymore, but he continues to use the methods of Brother Adam from Buckfast Abbey in England.
Flemming is a commercial queen breeder and produces many new colonies every year. He also breeds pure Carnica queens as well as a combination of Buckfast and Carnica strains.
His book features colour illustrations throughout and a handy operations calendar.
