Swarm Essentials

Ecology. Management. Sustainability

“Stephen Repasky and Lawrence Connor present a guided tour of what we humans have learned so far about the biology of swarming by honey bee colonies. Given the wonders and mysteries of honey bee swarms it will be extremely useful to all keen beekeepers.” Thomas Seeley, Cornell University.​​”Swarm Essentials is THE complete book on the topic that has, and continues to befuddle many beekeepers. The authors “deconstruct” the entire swarming process, the myriad methods beekeepers have devised to manage swarming, the impact of swarms in our environment and how to capture and manage new swarms. A delightful and informative read.”
