Since its release in 1999, Honey Bee Biology & Beekeeping has become a widely accepted textbook of apiculture. Universities use it to teach college students beekeeping and beekeepers use it to teach other beekeepers.
It concentrates on the ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘when’ of beekeeping. It explains bee and beekeeping basics in a manner meaningful to people who lack an intensive background in biology. Yet it is not oversimplified, but provides a meaningful source of beekeeping information for the informed beekeeper.
This Third Edition has been carefully edited, updated and expanded to 480 pages. New Chapters have been added, as have colourful new graphics and photographs. The Glossary has also been expanded.
This comprehensive textbook easily replaces many beginner books while adding comprehensive details of bee biology essential to becoming a successful beekeeper and student of the honey bee.
