Recent fears over the phenomenon of 'colony collapse' has led to a greater public appreciation of the importance of bees in pollinating crops, and also to a growing interest in amateur beekeeping. This sensibly organized introduction to the hobby shows you how to look after an apiary, season by season, and how to extract honey and other products such as beeswax and royal jelly. There are also sections on obtaining bees, rearing queens, equipment and pests and diseases. No jacket.
