Description

Just about anyone can keep bees. All you need is a bit of space in your backyard (or on your rooftop) and a little love for the creatures that pollinate the vegie patches of your neighbourhood. Once introduced to the charms of beekeeping and the taste of warm honeycomb direct from the hive, you'll be hooked! Backyard Bees is the ultimate guide to installing and maintaining a hive through the seasons. Learn how easy it is to keep happy, healthy bees, and how and when to harvest the liquid gold. Backyard Bees includes extensive advice on choosing a hive and the equipment you need; case studies and anecdotes from beekeepers; and 20 delicious recipes for all that honey, from Toasted Honey Granola to Bees Knees Cocktails. For everything you need to start your own hive or tend to an existing one, look no further than Backyard Bees!
