Backyard Beekeeper - Revised and Updated, 3rd Edition


Product Description

New material includes: - Latest techniques in the battle against  mites - The 25 rules of modern beekeeping - All about urban beekeeping

The Backyard Beekeeper makes the tradition of beekeeping an enjoyable and accessible backyard pastime. This expanded edition gives you even more information on "greening" your beekeeping with sustainable practices, pesticide-resistant bees, and urban and suburban beekeeping. More than a guide to beekeeping, it is a handbook for harvesting the products of a beehive and a honey cookbook--all in one. This complete honey bee resource contains general information on bees; a how-to guide to bee keeping including how to set up, care for, and harvest honey from your own colonies. You'll learn the best location to place your new bee colonies for their safety and yours, and you'll study the best organic and nontoxic ways to care for your bees, from providing fresh water and protection from the elements to keeping them healthy, happy, and productive. Recipes of delicious treats, and instructions on how to use honey and beeswax to make candles and beauty treatments are also included.
