Keeping Bees and Making Honey is a stunning, comprehensive and attractive lifestyle guide to beekeeping packed with images, information, practical advice, useful resources and recipes. Whether you have a tiny balcony or acres of land; live in the middle of a city or in the countryside surrounded by flowers, you can keep bees. Keeping Bees and Making Honey caters for every situation, and covers everything you will need to consider before you set up your colony--including when and how to tell the neighbours! 'Understanding your bees' introduces you to the history of bees and humans, the anatomy of a honey bee, the variety of species that you are likely to encounter, the caste system within a colony of queen, worker and drone, and the birth and life cycle of bees. 'What to consider' suggests factors to consider before keeping bees, from the space where you will house your hives to children and pets. Learn about the variety of hives available and how they work, as well all the important things that you will need including protective clothing, a smoker and hive tool, as well as honey-harvesting equipment. There are a variety of sources for purchasing your bees and 'Where and when to get your bees' will give you all the advice you need covering the nucleus, packaged bees, full colonies and tips on marking the queen. There are detailed sections on pollen and supers. 'Gardening for bees' will help you consider the best flowers to supply nectar and pollen to your bees whilst ensuring your garden looks great! It is probably the prospect of home-grown honey that entices most people to keep bees. 'All about honey' will show you how bees make honey, and how to harvest, jar and sell your honey. There is a whole chapter devoted to other bee products, from uses of beeswax; candles and cosmetics, to delicious recipes made with honey. Finally, 'Health and care' will ensure that your apiary stays clean and tidy, and your colony is pest free, strong and vigorous. This updated and revised edition of Keeping Bees and Making Honey includes new material on bees as a superorganism, keeping bees in urban locations such as schools and at work, caring for bees during the winter, your second year as a bee keeper and more on bee health, varroa and colony collapse disorder. Environmentally there has never been a more important time to start beekeeping, nor is there a better antidote to the stresses of everyday life. Keeping Bees and Making Honey is the ideal companion for you if you are planning to start keeping bees in order to contribute to their conservation and to enjoy the considerable benefits of this fascinating hobby.

The Bee Book: Beekeeping Basics, Harvesting Honey, Beeswax, Candles & Other Bee Business, Ann Cliff
2 The Bee Book: Beekeeping Basics, Harvesting Honey, Beeswax, Candles & Other Bee Business
Ann Cliff Australia Aird Books 2010 0947214607 / 9780947214609 Soft cover New Book 23.0 x 15.0 x 1.1 cm 
Honey has been an important food for people for thousands of years. Their desire for it led to the, domestication of bees, through crafting artificial beehives and manipulating the bees' food sources. But quite apart from the harvests of honey and wax, the life-giving role of bees in pollinating many plants that people rely on for food, has made them the stuff of legend, mystery, worship and, nowadays, also controversy. Although some people believe that our reliance on bees for the cultivation of food crops is much exaggerated (as some major staples like rice, wheat and even potatoes don't need them), there is no doubt that there are many crops whose very survival depends on bees. And that is why the recent, somewhat mysterious decline in bee populations around the world is so concerning to people who worry about the future of our natural environment. Anyone interested in growing food, who wants to find out what a beehive or two will give them, even on such a small scale as the suburban backyard or the terrace-house garden, will find this book an indispensable introduction to keeping bees.

Nature's Gifts: Answers to Questions about Honey, Pollen and all things Bees, Athol Craig and Skaidra Craig
3 Nature's Gifts: Answers to Questions about Honey, Pollen and all things Bees
Athol Craig and Skaidra Craig Australia Athol Craig 2016 0646911333 / 9780646911335 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 14.7 x 21.0 x 1.0 cm Glenbo Craig 
UPDATED REPRINT 2016 Did you know that to collect a kilo of honey, bees need to visit one million plants? In going about their daily lives, bees provide plants with pollination necessary for reproduction and biodiversity, and they provide food for many species from ants to insects to birds. They are also an integral part of the self-sufficiency approach to sustainable production. The authors look after over 100 honey and native bee hives. They have run bee workshops in schools and colleges, mead-making workshops for grown ups and started successful bee clubs. This book contains the answers to the questions they are most often asked, such as 'what is pollen?', 'how do bees make honey?' 'what if a bee stings?', 'how do you make mead?' and 'what pests and diseases affect bees?'. The 129-page book is strikingly illustrated and designed by the masterful Glenbo Craig.

Manuka: The Biography of an Extraordinary Honey, Cliff Van Eaton
4 Manuka: The Biography of an Extraordinary Honey
Cliff Van Eaton New Zealand Exisle Publishing 2014 1775591638 / 9781775591634 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
Not so long ago, in a small island nation in the South Pacific, beekeepers produced a most peculiar honey. It was much darker than the clover honey everyone put on their toast in the morning, and it tasted very different. In fact, the honey was a problem: it was hard to get out of the combs, and even harder for beekeepers to sell. Today that honey, manuka from New Zealand, is known around the world. It fetches high prices, and beekeepers do everything in their power to produce as much of it as possible. Wound dressings containing manuka honey are used in leading hospitals, and it has saved the lives of patients infected with disease-causing bacteria that are resistant to standard antibiotic drugs. In so doing it has forced the medical profession to rethink its position on the therapeutic properties of natural products. This book chronicles the remarkable 'rags-to-riches' story of manuka honey, as seen through the eyes of a New Zealand beekeeping specialist who watched it unfold from the very beginning. It's a great tale of science, in which an inquisitive university lecturer found something totally unexpected in a product everyone had written off. It's also an entertaining account of the way that seemingly simple discovery caught the international media's attention, helping enterprising New Zealanders to develop manuka honey-based products and take them all around the globe. But above all else it's a story of hope for the future, sounding a note of optimism in a world that for good reason feels saddened and sometimes even afraid about the future of the special relationship we humans have always had with those marvellous creatures, the honey bees.

Eric Grissell USA Timber Press 2010 0881929883 / 9780881929881 Hardcover New Book 23.1 x 15.5 x 3.3 cm 
Few insects are more important than bees, wasps, and ants. They maintain the garden's biological balance, fertilize vegetables, fruits, and flowers, and recycle nutrients within the soil. It's no exaggeration to say that a garden can't be understood without an understanding of its insects. "Bees, Wasps, and Ants" explores the importance of the Hymenoptera and explains how gardeners can encourage (or discourage) them in the garden. Part One includes a summary of their biology and a tour of what role they play in each part of the garden. Part Two takes a closer look at the individual groups within the family, including sawflies, horntails, woodwasps, parasitic wasps, predatory wasps, bees, and ants. "Bees, Wasps, and Ants" is sure to persuade even the most insectphobic reader to invite these fascinating creatures into their gardens.

The Illustrated Australasian Bee Manual: And Complete Guide to Modern Bee Culture in the Southern Hemisphere # Classic Reprint Series, Isaac Hopkins
9 The Illustrated Australasian Bee Manual: And Complete Guide to Modern Bee Culture in the Southern Hemisphere # Classic Reprint Series
Isaac Hopkins USA Forgotten Books 2015 1332317421 / 9781332317424 Soft cover New Book 22.9 x 15.2 x 1.1 cm 
Excerpt from The Illustrated Australasian Bee Manual: And Complete Guide to Modern Bee Culture in the Southern Hemisphere So rapid is the present progress of commercial beekeeping, necessarily accompanied by frequent changes and modifications in apiary appliances and methods of management, that much of the practical instructions embodied in technical works on bee-culture published from time to time, soon become antiquated, and out of date. I realised this in the present case when commencing to revise the text matter of the last - in preparation for the new - Edition, and therefore I decided to re-write, and re-construct, the whole of the chapters specially dealing with the Manual work of the apiary, and thereby to bring this Edition right up to date. This has been done to the best of my ability, and I trust that the alterations and new matter, together with the additional illustrations, will meet with the approval of those for whom the book is published. My recent position as Chief Government Apiarist in New Zealand afforded me exceptional opportunities for observing how commercial bee-keeping can be, and is, conducted under different conditions, and by different types of bee-keepers. It also enabled me in the course of my duties to carry out experiments at the Government Apiaries to determine matters of great importance to the industry; some of the results of which have already been published in "Bulletin" No. 18 on Bee-Culture, obtainable from the offices of the Department of Agriculture. The results of the knowledge thus gained are embodied in the present volume. I would draw special attention to the remarkable progress made in commercial bee-keeping in New Zealand since the Government gave its support to the industry.

More Than Honey: The Survival of Bees and the Future of Our World, Markus Imhoof and Claus-Peter Lieckfeld
14 More Than Honey: The Survival of Bees and the Future of Our World
Markus Imhoof and Claus-Peter Lieckfeld Canada Greystone Books 2015 1771640995 / 9781771640992 Soft cover New Book 21.6 x 14.0 x 1.5 cm 
"If 70 percent of all cattle or 30 percent of all chickens were to die annually, states of emergency would be declared everywhere. The death of bees is at least that dramatic and with even more far-reaching consequences." More Than Honey, the book based on the award-winning documentary of the same name, takes us on a global tour of the world of bees, introducing us along the way to "killer bees," Frankenbees, beekeepers, and human pollinators. Markus Imhoof and Claus-Peter Lieckfeld examine both the history and current status of our relationship to and reliance on bees, and expose the human behaviors that are contributing to the decline of the bee population--a decline that could ultimately contribute directly to a world food problem. The authors intersperse information about the intricate social structure of the bee world and the problems faced by bees--ranging from the ubiquitous Varroa destructor to overuse of pesticides and an ever-shrinking natural landscape--with conversations and interviews with beekeepers and bee experts from across the world, balancing the views of those who see bees as simply a valuable source of income with the views of those who see bees as undervalued, misunderstood creatures that need our help to survive. The end result is a fascinating, accessible overview of a species that is crucial to our survival. 152 pages. About the Authors: Markus Imhoof is an Oscar-nominated Swiss filmmaker and director of the international award-winning documentary More Than Honey. He is descended from a long line of beekeepers. Claus-Peter Lieckfeld co-founded and edited the German ecological magazine Natur. He currently works as a freelance writer, and in addition to co-authoring several books, has written numerous articles on nature. Both live in Berlin.

Beekeepers keep bees for three reasons: bees are pollinators and their presence increases a garden's productivity; there is a fascination with how they live, collect food and colonise; and they produce honey. Build Your Own Beekeeping Equipment offers 35 building projects for everything from hive components to frames to swarm catchers, all illustrated with step-by-step instructions. Many require only simple hand tools and can be made using recycled materials at a fraction of the price charged in stores. Beekeeping continues to gain popularity among not only rural people living self sufficiently but also urban dwellers, which means there are more beekeepers who are interested in pursing a more self sufficient, hands-on lifestyle. With this comprehensive guide, they will learn the skills they need to build their own equipment.
