Honey Bee Biology and Beekeeping explains bee biology, what bees do, and provides the tools which make it possible for an individual to successfully manage bee colonies. I have concentrated on the “why” aspects of bee biology – the biological basis of specific beekeeping activities – so that the reader understands “when” and “how” certain things must be done. My intent is to explain bee and beekeeping basics in a manner meaningful to a person who lacks an extensive background or knowledge of biology. Yet I have not oversimplified bee biology to the point where it is meaningless to the serious beekeeper or informed biologist” – Dewey M Caron. A popular speaker and author, Dr. Dewey M.
