Overview

In step with this pastime's great resurgence on city rooftops as well as across rural America, this trusted guide will lead experienced beekeepers into new areas, answer questions, and help refine your skills. Great for beginners, too!
Covering the rearing of queens, honey-making methods, honey marketing, the benefit of pollinator rental, and everything else related to beekeeping, The New Complete Guide to Beekeeping explains step-by-step what it takes to establish a thriving hive that produces an amazing end product, and all the simple pleasures of beekeeping along the way. Whether you capture a native colony from a hollow tree (a method only for the brave!), adopt a hive from someone who has too many (a much easier method), or start from scratch by buying a queen and purchasing worker bees by the pound, this is a comprehensive guide to making your endeavor successful and even profitable. Whole chapters are dedicated to: the best plants for honey production; seasonal hive management; pests and predators; pollination; honey bee biology; and finding more information from government and public sources.

    Everything a Beginner needs!

    Everything a Beginner needs! This book starts at the basics, it's written in an easy and fun to read format. With bunches of pictorials, that speaks volumes. I'll keep this book handy throughout the year.

    I would give this book 3 stars

    It is a good book to read if you are interested in keeping bees. I felt like it was more written toward bee keepers in the northern states. Chapter 13 is a great read for anyone interested in beekeeping.
