Publisher's Summary

An Easy Guide for Getting Started with Beekeeping

Beekeeping is a fun, easy-to-learn, inexpensive, and uniquely rewarding hobby that nearly anyone can do. Perhaps that's why it's growing in popularity, with new members joining local and national beekeeping groups in greater numbers each year, and new apiculture conferences and even scholarships coming online. Interest is up all around the world, as evidenced by numerous backyard beekeeping meetups, community workshops, and beekeeper training events that seem to crop up almost everywhere you look.

This audiobook contains a wealth of knowledge that comes from years of experience, distilled down to the essentials that every beginner needs. It offers practical advice to guide you all the way through your first season, from sourcing bees and equipment right through harvesting honey and preparing the hive for winter. Wherever I could, I also included tidbits, tricks, and shortcuts I wish I had known starting out - anything to make the job of beekeeping easier for you on your first time out.

Within this audiobook, you'll find the answers to these questions and more. Just some of the questions and topics covered include

  • Beekeeping Basics
  • All About Bees
  • Types of Bees
  • Hive Structure
  • Honey Flows
  • Making Preparations
  • Beekeeping by the Seasons
  • Problems to Watch Out For
  • Harvest and Winterization
  • And more!

    A great guide on beekeeping with absolutely everything you need to know and to get you started on your journey to becoming a beekeeper. I grabbed this book to learn more as the idea of keeping bees is awesome and great for my garden, not to mention the sweet honey! Although now it seems like it might be a bit tougher than I thought, but still looks very enjoyable and this book certainly answered all the questions I had.

    "Excellent Way Of Start "
    Any additional comments?

    An excellent introduction to Beekeeping and I've bought already 2 books on beekeeping, this is the best so far! Covers everything in a well laid out, narrative style and Well organized and illustrated, leaves little out. If you are interested in bees or beekeeping it is the best, I think. Start with this book. Good coverage of the three most popular types of hives, their variants and reasons for each style. Diseases and pests also well covered. I recommended this book.

    "Easy To Apply "
    Any additional comments?

    Beekeeping is something that many people can have in their lives especially in their older years. It can keep you alive and it can be some kind of a recreation. The honey is also healthy and you can earn some good money from it. That's why I bought this book, because I am planning something like this. It's a thorough guide and you've got everything chewed up, so if you decide, you can have no problems with it.
