What a great gift this book will make for any beekeeper. This book is an expanded and substantially revised edition of the classis text created by two highly experienced educators in the field of beekeeping: Dr Dewey Caron and Dr Larry Conner. Their combined depth of experience has resulted in a wonderful update and expansion of a classic text in beekeeping.
This classic concentrates on the 'why,' how' and 'when' of beekeeping. It explains bee basics in a manner meaningful to people who lack an intensive background in biology. It does not oversimplify, and provides a meaningful source of beekeeping information for the new and informed beekeeper. Widely considered the most complete beekeeping textbook, covering a vast array of topics of bee biology and colony management.
