The New Complete Guide to Beekeeping, Paperback

The New Complete Guide to Beekeeping Paperback



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.
