A Lifetime of Beekeeping Mistakes


Geoff Critchley

SKU 2532B Categories , Tag


This book covers all the basics of managing successful hives, from buying in bee stocks and equipment, to record keeping, establishing and growing colonies, different types of hives, maintaining queens and drones, honey extraction, and diseases.

A Lifetime of Beekeeping Mistakes is written from the voice of experience rather than academic research, and is entirely practical, based very much on the right and wrong ways of doing things the author has experienced throughout his beekeeping career.
