Natural Beekeeping - Excellent and Encouraging
on 8 August 2009
With all the troubles besetting our hives, and agriculture at large, its encouraging to read the work of somebody that believes that we don't have to resort to harmful approaches. Ross Conrad provides a good explanation for why we should consider an organic approach and then takes us through all aspects of the process of beekeeping/bee farming. There is a 5 page afterword about Colony Collapse Disorder. Conrad notes that he and others practicing Natural or Organic Apiculture don't appear to have been as severely impacted.
He has a readable style and the book is full of first hand experience.
