Product Description

From the Back Cover

Humble, hardworking and matriarchal, bees are the unsung heroes of the food chain. Yet they are now disappearing in alarming numbers, putting at risk their essential role in pollinating apples, oranges, blueberries and 90 other essential crops we eat.

Overtaxed and underrecognised, the humble bee finally gets her due in this engaging, fascinating and expertly written guided tour of the world of bees. Apiarist (that's a beekeeper) and nature writer Susan Brackney is passionate about bees - how they live, work and think, as well as what they can teach us. In Plan Bee, she shares her knowledge about the well-orchestrated buzzing inside the hive.

Discover

why honeybees are disappearing and what we can do about it

the beekeeper's trade - become an expert on the hive from the inside out and learn how to care for your own

honey, pollen, wax, royal jelly, mead and other products of the sweet life

gardening tips to attract and support honeybees.

Plan Bee will appeal to anyone who's ever been curious about the mysterious and always-buzzing world of bees.
