Easily the most comprehensive book published on the subject of honey bees and beekeeping. The new 40th Edition is edited by Dr. Roger Morse. Completely rewritten and redesigned, this edition has the absolute latest information on every aspect of the craft of beekeeping. From notorious African Bees to the less dramatic, but equally important subject of wintering, it covers all topics in detail, with well written, easily understood text, and hundreds of photos and diagrams. It is a practical guide for beekeepers, and a handy reference for teachers, researchers and libraries. The glossary contains over 500 words and phrases commonly used in the science and practical application of beekeeping.
