3.0 out of 5 stars Intrigued but not convinced, 2 Oct 2011
This review is from: Bee-Friendly Beekeeper (Paperback)
To many of the latest generation of beekeepers, who are more interested in the wellbeing of their honey bees than maximising honey production, a bee-friendly, sustainable approach to bee husbandry is an exciting prospect. The author sets out an updated version of the approach devised by Abbe Emilie Warre (1867-1951)which he seeks to justify ethically, scientifically and practically. Whilst the science quoted is sound, it appears selective. Since Warre's death the varroa mite has appeared requiring enormous changes in approaches to disease management and material modifications to hive design. Whilst the author shows how these modifications can be incorporated into a Warre hive, the whole approach is unconvincing. The book provides an interesting read for experienced beekeepers and has intrigued me sufficiently to give it a go next season. However, new beekeepers should read conventional books as well before embarking down this route.
