Storey’s Guide to Keeping Honey Bees


SKU: MB-StoreysKeepingHoneyBees Category:

Storey’s Guide to Keeping Honey Bees  guides you through every step of Beekeeping:

  • Planning a hive
  • Acquiring Bees
  • Installing a colony
  • Keeping your bees healthy
  • Understanding and preventing diseases
  • Harvesting honey crops

For anyone giving thought to owning & raising a particular species, the “Storey” Guide books should be the first book to buy. Why? Because they focus on fundamentals, have many illustrations and data, are not so long that they’re off-putting and are written in “laymen’s language” for USA conditions by authors respected in their industry. Once you have a “Storey” sense of a species you can move other books that address more specific aspects. Chapters in Storey’s Guide to Keeping Honey Bees include:

  • Beginning Beekeeping
  • Origin and History of Beekeeping
  • A Bee’s Life
  • Choosing Hive Location
  • Getting Equipped
  • Enter the Bees
  • Managing Honey Bee Colonies
  • Taking the Crop
  • Pollination
  • Diseases and Pests of the Honey Bee
