About this book

Through its clear explanatory text and admirable illustrations Beekeeping skilfully lays out the elements of good practice in tropical beekeeping. It explains both traditional techniques using low-cost hives and more advanced methods, pointing out the most appropriate system for the level of investment the beekeeper withes to make. The author has a wealth of knowledge, developed through years of thoughtful observation and practical experiences working with beekeepers all over Africa and with his own hives in Kenya. Existing beekeepers wishing to improve their techniques and those looking to start a new beekeeping enterprise will find Beekeeping invaluable.
