Overview

“The Book of Bee-keeping” is a classic guide to keeping bees for profit and pleasure. It includes complete instructions for setting up and managing a successful apiary, as well as tips and observations from a life-long keeper on how to avoid problems and make a profit. Highly recommended for modern readers interested in keeping bees. Contents Include: “Introduction", "Advantages of Bee-keeping", "The Honey Bee", "Products of Bees", "Combs", "Modern Bee-keeping", "Appliances", "Food", "Swarming", "Manipulating", "Honey", "Diseases of Bees", "Enemies of Bees", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
