This essential guide to beekeeping will introduce you, in a simple and effective way, to all the various steps you need to take in order to generate your beehives and make them prosper.
One of the most common mistakes among beginners is to think that all bees are capable of producing honey. You need to know that there exist more than 20.000 species of bees, but only a small part of those can actually produce honey! It is then important to understand which kind of bee to raise to be able to produce good honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly.
There currently are many references about the beneficial properties of honey for our health, and there are also many studies dedicated to these. Obviously, in order to enjoy all the benefits provided by honey, you need to prefer the raw one, the one that has not undergone industrial processing. In fact, such processes deprive it from many of its useful nutrients, impoverishing its quality and reducing its effectiveness.
From picking the right hive and bringing your bees home to surviving winter and collecting honey, experienced beekeeper Amanda Ross takes you on an easy-to-follow journey through your first year of beekeeping and beyond.
If you are new to beekeeping, this book will teach you step-by-step everything you need to know in order to set up healthy hives, and be able to produce a very good honey.
