About this book

Language: Italian

What's the buzz about the growing popularity of backyard beekeeping? Providing habitat for bees, pollinating your garden and producing honey for your family are some of the compelling reasons for taking up this exciting hobby. But conventional beekeeping requires a significant investment and has a steep learning curve. The alternative? Consider beekeeping outside the box.

Guida all’Apicoltura Naturale con Arnie Top Bar is the definitive do-it-yourself guide to natural beekeeping in top bar hives. Based on the concept of understanding and working with bees' natural systems as opposed to trying to subvert them, the advantages of this approach include:
- simplicity, sustainability and cost-effectiveness
- increased safety due to less heavy lifting and hive manipulation
- chemical-free colonies and healthy hives.

Top bar hives can be located anywhere bees have access to forage, and they make ideal urban hives due to their small footprint.

Emphasizing the intimate connection between our food systems, bees, and the wellbeing of the planet, Guida all’Apicoltura Naturale con Arnie Top Bar will appeal to the new breed of beekeeper who is less focused on maximizing honey yield, and more on ensuring the viability of the bee population now and in the coming years.

Summary in Italian:
Creare il giusto habitat per le api, impollinare il giardino e produrre miele per la famiglia sono motivi convincenti per intraprendere l’apicoltura familiare. L’apicoltura naturale in arnie top bar offre inoltre un approccio sorprendentemente semplice, economico ed ecologico nei confronti di una ricerca così avvincente e gratificante, e in questo caso L’apicoltore consapevole rappresenta la guida fai-da-te più completa in assoluto.

Le arnie top bar possono essere posizionate ovunque le api abbiano accesso a foraggiamento, e idealmente sono state pensate per adattarsi all’ambiente urbano. Nel tentativo di affondare le radici nella comprensione e nel rispetto dei sistemi naturali delle api, invece di sovvertirli come spesso si è cercato di fare in passato, le arnie top bar possono vantare:
- semplicità, sostenibilità ed efficienza dei costi
- maggiore sicurezza a causa di operazioni e manipolazioni più contenute sull’alveare 
- colonie esenti da sostanze chimiche e arnie salubri.
