Guide to Bees and Honey by Ted Hooper
Model Number: 9781899296040
Fourth edition, reprinted in 2003.
“If there is one book that should be on the shelf of every beekeeper, it is Ted Hooper’s classic. It contains four sections. The first is a very full description of the honeybee, its behaviour and its colony; the second is an introduction to the craft of beekeeping, which the third deals with in far more details. The last section covers flowers and harvesting honey.” Beekeeping 1992
For those contemplating a start in beekeeping, this first paperback edition is the ideal friendly guide. For those who, like the author, have kept bees for years and years, it is the reference book to which one turns when planning requeening, avoiding or dealing with swarms, providing the colony with winter stores, coping with pests and diseases, even planning a bee-friendly garden.
Fully illustrated. Brought right up to date with the latest information on Varroa.
