All too often, books written for new beekeepers carry far too much information which can be confusing for the reader. Andrew’s book is an exception and will help the novice to quickly grasp the basics of beekeeping. It covers topics such as: How much time will it take and what will it cost? What will the return be? Basics – the bees, inside the hive, space, materials; options and objectives; getting started; clothing, tools, stock, hives, location; colony management – from managing the colony strength to everything you need to know about swarms; colony protection; equipment – all you need to know as a beginner; and, where to learn more – associations and resources. Andrew’s detailed step-by-step guidelines are supported by excellent diagrams and colour photos which support and enhance the text.
