Keep Bees Without Fuss Or Chemicals

Keep Bees Without Fuss Or Chemicals

This book is for new beekeepers and experienced beekeepers who want to stop using chemicals in their hives. It is also written for anyone who wants to know more about honey bees and the art of beekeeping, presenting the natural history of these marvellous creatures in a straightforward manner, illustrated with line drawings and greyscale photographs. The author relates his own experience of how local honey bee colonies are evolving to survive and thrive, despite the threats of varroa and other pest and diseasesThis, without the need for chemicals or special treatment.There are few moments in life that match the joy and satisfaction of standing near a healthy hive on a warm day, when the bees are flying and bringing in their loads of sweet nectar and colourful pollen. To hear the humming of the hive and smell the intoxicating aroma of the evaporating nectar on a warm summer evening gives a feeling of peace and tranquillity that is rarely experienced in our mundane and hectic modern world: a true communion with nature.Beekeeping is an enjoyable and absorbing hobby. There is always something new to learn and observe in these fascinating and useful insects. You will benefit from the products of the hive: delicious and healthy honey, beeswax and other hive products that are used in cosmetics and medicines. You will meet fellow beekeepers and make new friends who have a like-minded regard and love of nature. Your bees will benefit the local environment by pollinating fruit, seeds and berries to produce food for people and wild life. You will develop a better understanding of nature and help make the world a better place.... Note: photos in grayscale.

The author has drawn his own sketches to illustrate the text which adds a personal touch."
