"The Bee Manual" offers a clear and concise introduction into the fascinating world of the honey bee and the addictive craft of beekeeping. For various reasons, the number of bee colonies has been declining and there is great interest in trying to aid their recovery.

Anyone wanting to keep bees first needs to learn about the individuals, how colonies operate and how the beekeeper can work with these insects to help them thrive, carry out their pollination activities and produce a satisfying honey crop.

Full of colour photos and clear step-by-step text, this book offers practical advice for anyone planning to take up this absorbing hobby.

About the author

Claire Waring has kept bees for over 25 years, starting with one colony that quickly multiplied to four during the first season. She is actively involved in local bee-keeping and has travelled to a large number of countries to see and learn about bee-keeping.
