Homegrown Honey Bees
This beginner’s guide clearly explains everything you need to know to keep bees successfully, from getting your first bees to harvesting your first crop of honey and dealing with varroa mites. Spectacular macro photography by Mars Vilaubi brings the inner workings of the hive to life, while the playful text gives you the information you need to make it through your first year. A broad host of topics are addressed from allergies, permits and restrictions, and how to deal with the neighbors to hive structure, colony hierarchy, and bee behavior.
