An excellent new edition of this comprehensive guide - packed full of useful facts and information that can provide guidance for beekeepers everywhere. Written primarily for beekeepers in North America, some of the practical descriptions inevitably relate only to frame hive beekeeping with European races of honey bees as practised there, but the clearly described descriptions of many apicultural skills are widely applicable. A special feature of this text is the amount of factual information it contains and the clarity with these facts are presented – accompanied when necessary by clear, helpful diagrams. Finally an up to date bibliography and resource list, complete this extremely useful text.
