An excellent book
on 5 July 2011
This is an excellent book. It is a joy to read and to look at, as it is so well written and nicely laid out with good text. It offers plenty of good advice and it is easy to read, giving all the necessary information in a clear and no-nonsense way. It is presented in a logical order and there are excellent photographs and/or diagrams with very clear and sharp images on every page, all of which are very helpful. These support what is being discussed in the text, for example how to assemble a hive and frames, images of queen cells and queen cups, marking the queen, inspecting your colony of bees, bee diseases, how to carry out an artificial swarm, swarm control, feeding the bees and how to extract the honey, to name but a few topics. The index is comprehensive and it is easy to find anything that you need to look up. I thoroughly recommend this book and it is certainly an absolute 'must' for those new to beekeeping.
