About this book

In a way, it seems sad that the bees' only weapon, the sting, intended for use in colony defence, is utilised by man for the same purpose.

Bees as weapons; wax used in the making of weapons and in taking notes; honey and wax to embalm the 'mighty' fallen like Alexander; honey and propolis in wound care. All are here. Bees are still used up to the present as message carriers, for example, and, lately, as mine detectors.

Bee-sieged doesn't tell you how to control swarms but it does show an area of man-bee interaction in great detail and in an engaging way.
