A good description of beekeeping as it practised today in Kenya. Clear, practical information begins with an introduction to beekeeping, the different types of hives and how to get started. An explanation of the beekeeping year is followed by the harvesting and marketing of bee products, and then the costs and profits of starting a beekeeping enterprise. Colour photographs accompany the text and useful annexes offer recipes for value-added products and sources of further information. This is a very realistic and practical text for beginner beekeepers in Kenya and other parts of Africa.
