Jam-packed information in just an hour

Jam-packed information in just an hour of listening. There's really no reason for me to say it is impossible to do beekeeping when there are easy-to-follow guides like this one.

easy self-help in backyard animals for beginners

One of the easiest self-help in backyard animals for beginners. Take note that it only covers the basics. I still have to read and listen other books before I start with beekeeping.

keep the bees safe while gathering their honeys

The whole idea of beekeeping is naturally balancing the ecosystem. I keep the bees safe while gathering their honeys. I am certain this method will be further improved in the coming years.

Learned a lot from it!

The female voice gave justice to the book. I find it easier to grasp the whole content of a guide when I listen to the book rather than read it. The whole concept of beekeeping is done in an hour and a half. Pretty good time span to keep me interested. Learned a lot from it!

This book is extremely informative

It is explained more like a text book and offers in depth learning for someone wanting more than just the basics. I find many bee and gardening books to be frustratingly simple and seemingly geared towards children's books so this was exactly what I was hoping for.

possible for any family to do beekeeping

I used to think that I would not possibly be able to do beekeeping in my backyard cause I am afraid of the bees. With how the narrator laid it down, I think it is possible for any family to do beekeeping and eventually, harvest their own honey for personal use or for selling.

You had me at beekeeping!

You had me at beekeeping! I like bees and honey. Knowing I can culture them with simple steps, I'll enlist the help of my husband to do them.
