“Spend less time reading how to assemble a frame and more time understanding what it takes for you and the bees to produce the wax, honey and pollen that goes into that comb. This is a book focused on compassionate animal husbandry. There is a strong ‘natural’ focus for beekeepers who want to avoid or minimise pesticides and reduce stress on the bees. A book of thought-provoking, science-based discussion designed for individuals and beekeeping clubs who mentor new beekeepers. [..] this book should be in everyone’s library or more importantly in every bee bag or bee truck for a quick reference to that one issue that eludes your knowledge base.” Becky Jones, CT.
