Beekeeping equipment is expensive, but it’s easy to make your own. Tony Pisano’s step-by-step illustrated instructions show you how to build everything you need to keep bees successfully, including beehive bodies, supers, covers, hive stands, frames, swarm catchers, feeders and more. You can choose among different hive styles, and many of the 35 projects can be made using hand tools. With Pisano’s step-by-step instructions, a table saw and a few other common tools and materials, you can build everything you need to house and protect your bees — from hive bodies to supers and covers. You’ll even find a section on installing electric fencing and plans for building jigs that make assembling frames and installing foundations a snap. Copyright 2013, softcover, 160 pages.
