Bee-Keeping in War-Time (Paperback)
This vintage book contains a detailed guide to setting up and managing a beehive, with chapters on swarming, handling, rearing, diseases, and much more. Although old, much of the information in this book is timeless and will be of considerable utility to modern bee-keepers. Contents include: "The Swellings of Bees", "The Population of the Hive", "Swarms, Natural and Artificial", "How to Establish and Manage Bees", "Handling Bees", "Obtaining Heather Honey", "Rearing and Introducing Queens", "Diseases", "Cost and Returns", and "Calendar of Work for the Year". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on Bee-keeping.
