From the son of Charles Dadant, this book has been the beginner beekeeper's first stop for over 90 years.
The latest edition honours the tradition of sticking to the basics, while fully engaging the new realities of beekeeping in the 21st century.
This illustrated book is everything you need to know to become a successful beginning beekeeper.
Topics covered include everything from a background on bee anatomy and the social structure of bee communities to different types of hives and how they function, honey production, wintertime beekeeping, and other practical matters.
