From the Publisher

Believe it or not, bees are one of the oldest species of domesticated animals. Archeologists have found evidence of beekeeping, or apiculture, in the Middle East dating back more than five thousand years. If you’ve ever tasted good clover honey, it’s not hard to understand why. But it’s not just for the honey that more than 125,000 people (and growing) in the United States, alone, keep hives. Anyone interested in nature can’t help but be fascinated by those buzzing yellow bundles of energy and the exotic world they inhabit, with all its weird rituals and incredible efficiency. Also, dedicated gardeners appreciate the extra bounty that pollinating bees bring to their fruits, flowers, and vegetable gardens.

In this easy-to-follow guide, Howland Blackiston, one of the nation’s most respected authorities on the subject, takes the mystery (and the sting) out of beekeeping. Taking a step-by-step approach to successful backyard beekeeping, he gets you up and running with all the information you need to:

  • Build a hive
  • Establish your first colony
  • Inspect your hives with confidence
  • Maintain healthy colonies
  • Deal with pests and fix common problems
  • Harvest and enjoy fresh homemade honey
  • Bottle and market your honey

    Howland Blackiston covers all the bases, from bee anatomy, society, and behavior, to identifying and healing common illnesses afflicting bees. He also offers inventive solutions to most common and many uncommon problems you’re likely to run into. Among other things, you’ll discover:

    • Where to put your hive, basic equipment you’ll need, and how to assemble a hive
    • The best and safest way to inspect and enjoy your bees
    • Year-round tasks a beekeeper must perform to maintain a healthy colony
    • How to recognize and deal with common problems with brood production and the precious queen
    • How to harvest honey and decide what kind of honey you’d like to make
    • Making products from beeswax and propolis

      For both fun and profit, beekeeping has become a booming enterprise. A real honey of a book, Beekeeping For Dummies gets you on the road to enjoying this ancient, highly-rewarding, and oh-so-tasty hobby.
