Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Applewood Books has published reprints of two of beekeeping's great past books... The second is "Beekeeping: A Discussion of the Life of the Honeybee," first published in 1918, by Everett Franklin Phillips, of Cornell Bee Library fame. 457 pages contain 24 chapters and almost 200 illustrations with some photos. It is about keeping bees. It covers bee biology, colony organization, beekeeping equipment, managing for honey production, pests and diseases, wintering, honey sources, and queen rearing. Nearly 90 years old, it still has a boatload of good information, useful even in today's world of varroa mites and Colony Collapse Disorder.
