Welcome to this book. Inside you will find everything that you need to know about keeping bees. Now, before we go on, I must warn you, there will be some bee humor in here. There will be lots of puns too, I mean a lot! So if you do not wish to be entertained while learning, then I would suggest going out and buying a boring book. This book is going to be fun. Now down to business. Why would you want to keep bees? There are many reasons. Bees are dying out around the world, yet they help to produce up to one third of the world's food. We cannot let them die! By keeping bees, you are increasing the bee population and saving the world! Pretty cool, right. Another great reason to keep bees is all the free honey that you will have access to. Soon you will be an expert, thanks to this book. That means that you will have honey coming out of your ears (not literally, that would be gross). Bees produce a lot of honey, as if by magic. Do it right and you could end up with a lot of great honey. Now, not only will your honey be raw and organic (the best kinds), but it will also be local. Studies have shown that honey made from the pollen of local flowers can help to ease allergies and other ailments. The great part is, that even if it does nothing to cure or help any of those, you still have a great tasting sugar substitute. You will also be able to smell the sweet aroma of honey wafting from your backyard (or wherever your beehive is) into your house. On a warm summer's day, this will be bliss. It will not only be our sense of smell which is tickled, our other senses will benefit too. Bees are friendly creatures and if you do not harm them then they will not harm you. It is a pleasure to see bees buzzing through your yard. Going from flower to flower and then back to the hive. The noise too. The gentle buzz of the honeybee brings any garden alive. While we are talking about bringing your garden alive, we should talk about your garden being brought alive, literally. Bees will increase the pollination of your yard and the surrounding areas. If you grow fruits or vegetables then you will experience greater yields. If you have flowers, then those flowers will bloom like never before. Is there nothing that bees cannot do? Well, use doors thankfully. We like bees, but we do not want them all moving in to our house. There are much more benefits that we could talk about, but for now, I will leave you with one thought planted in your mind. The honey that you harvest from your own bees will be the best honey that you have ever tasted in your life.

Download A Z Beekeeping with the Slovenian Hive Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
This is not a miracle hive, one more from many. It is proven and survived concept from the country with old beekeeping tradition, from the country that gave first governmental beekeeping teacher in the Central Europe and that had live contacts over the ocean with exchange of beekeeping experts as well involvement in main spread of well know Carniolan bee. The original hive design was developed during direct experience with the American way of beekeeping at the end of 19th century, but slowly introduced at the beginning of 20th century. It overrode all other concept and with some new innovations is staying well alive also between Slovenian professional beekeepers. The book is a result of old wish to describe Slovenian way of beekeeping and finally encouraged by urgent need of modern adopters from USA. It was long time ago that I prepared simple description with some drawings of Slovenian AZ hive at University web pages. From time to time some contacted me for additional explanation. Until recently I didn't have enough courage to focus on writing a comprehensive book or at list booklet that could help beekeepers that understand English, to try with Slovenian way of beekeeping. Actually two beekeepers from USA, Suzanne and Mark started with our hives nearly independently and close one to each other. One with previous leaving experience in Slovenia, the other with ancestors in Slovenia, both fell in love with Slovenia first, and later recognized special beauty of Slovenian way of beekeeping. Both approached to help in their future endower. Mark soon came with idea that early adopters of AZ hive will need some kind of user guide. So we had several meetings when he visited Slovenia and made master plan. That was how this book started to become basic help for nowadays beekeepers that want to use a hive that enables them farther enjoyment regardless of obstacles that arrives with aging or other reasons. You will be able to find basic information how the hive looks like and how to start beekeeping in Slovenian way. My special emphases is on a bee house which I count for a beekeeper as a "bee chapel." Our hives are very suited for such arrangements. I have written above statements without my American friend William Blomstedt, who helped out to put my thoughts in readable English. You might remember him from reading his beekeeping articles from his experience with beekeeping around the World, also Slovenia. Special thanks to William and all who encouraged me and helped in preparing this second edition!

Download Good beekeeping practices for sustainable apiculture Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
Bees provide a critical link in the maintenance of ecosystems, pollination. They play a major role in maintaining biodiversity, ensuring the survival of many plants, enhancing forest regeneration, providing sustainability and adaptation to climate change and improving the quality and quantity of agricultural production systems. In fact, close to 75 percent of the world’s crops that produce fruits and seeds for human consumption depend, at least in part, on pollinators for sustained production, yield and quality. Beekeeping, also called apiculture, refers to all activities concerned with the practical management of social bee species. These guidelines aim to provide useful information and suggestions for a sustainable management of bees around the world, which can then be applied to project development and implementation.

Download QueenSpotting Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
At the heart of every bee hive is a queen bee. Since her well-being is linked to the well-being of the entire colony, the ability to find her among the residents of the hive is an essential beekeeping skill. In QueenSpotting, experienced beekeeper and professional “swarm catcher” Hilary Kearney challenges readers to "spot the queen" with 48 fold-out queenspotting puzzles — vivid up-close photos of the queen hidden among her many subjects. QueenSpotting celebrates the unique, fascinating life of the queen bee chronicles of royal hive happenings such as The Virgin Death Match, The Nuptual Flight — when the queen mates with a cloud of male drones high in the air — and the dramatic Exodus of the Swarm from the hive. Readers will thrill at Kearney’s adventures in capturing these swarms from the strange places they settle, including a Jet Ski, a couch, a speed boat, and an owl’s nesting box. Fascinating, fun, and instructive, backyard beekeepers and nature lovers alike will find reason to return to the pages again and again.
