About this book

This book follows the same style and approach as all the other popular Beekeeping Study Notes for the BBKA Examinations, the first of which was published in 1990. This third edition has been updated and prepared by John and Dawn Yates. They need no introduction as they are both well known beekeepers. They have followed their usual style by addressing every section of the syllabus in considerable detail in order to assist those who may be contemplating I sitting this examination. They are both Master Beekeepers having passed the BBKA Senior Examination on successive years and both gaining the coveted Wax Chandler Prize for the best written papers of their year.

They are both convinced that the BBKA must be a self-supporting organisation, particularly in the educational field where the traditional assistance from County Bee Instructors has now vanished and assistance from the National Bee Unit in adult bee disease diagnosis has become prohibitively expensive for the average beekeeper. These latest study notes will be especially useful for the training of branch microscopists. The book provides the necessary information to enable those who are interested in microscopy to attain the confidence and competence required.

The examination sylabus has changed since the first edition was prepared; it now contains much on safety and hygiene. This third edition has several new colour plates.
