This practical, readable and comprehensive book contains detailed information on honeybees and on every aspect of responsible, successful beekeeping. It also covers the special requirements of managing hives in Australia where, in contrast to cooler areas, bees often continue to breed and gather honey throughout the winter. Also discussed are palletisation and the small hive beetle, plus an expanded list of agricultural chemicals and their toxicities to bees.
