About this book

Beekeeping is a popular pastime that more and more people are turning to for personal enjoyment or even small commercial gain. Today you will find hives in backyards, gardens, and on rooftops, benefiting both the bee and the keeper.

For those who have begun their beekeeping journey and need a go-to pocket guide on establishing and maintaining their hives, The Beekeeper's Field Guide is the perfect book. Not only will readers learn about a wide range of bee species and their life cycle, behaviour, and preferred plants, but readers will also be informed about the practicalities of beekeeping, from personal safety and hygiene to record keeping and legal requirements.

With an extensive troubleshooting section that debunks myths, and includes explanations and solutions for "bad" bee behaviour, diseases, and pests, The Beekeeper's Field Guide is a handy-sized yet comprehensive tool for all keen and established beekeepers.
