Présentation de l'éditeur

Today's beekeepers face unprecedented challenges, a fact that is now front-page news with the spread of "colony collapse disorder." Newly introduced pests like varroa and tracheal mites have made chemical treatment of hives standard practice, but pest resistance is building, which in turn creates demand for new and even more toxic chemicals. In fact, there is evidence that chemical treatments are making matters worse.

It's time for a new approach. Now revised and updated with new resources and including full-color photos throughout, Natural Beekeeping offers all the latest information in a book that has already proven invaluable for organic beekeepers. The new edition offers the same holistic, sensible alternative to conventional chemical practices with a program of natural hive management, but offers new sections on a wide range of subjects, including:

  • The basics of bee biology and anatomy

  • Urban beekeeping

  • Identifying and working with queens

  • Parasitic mite control

  • Hive diseases

Also, a completely new chapter on marketing provides valuable advice for anyone who intends to sell a wide range of hive products.Ross Conrad brings together the best "do no harm" strategies for keeping honeybees healthy and productive with nontoxic methods of controlling mites; eliminating American foulbrood disease without the use of antibiotics; selective breeding for naturally resistant bees; and many other detailed management techniques, which are covered in a thoughtful, matter-of-fact way.

Whether you are a novice looking to get started with bees, an experienced apiculturist looking for ideas to develop an integrated pest-management approach, or someone who wants to sell honey at a premium price, this is the book you've been waiting for.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Here's the buzz 8 février 2014
Par kinigit - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is one of my favorite bee books. I think it is probably the most complete guide out there that does focus on the environmental and natural approaches to keeping bees. It is very dense reading and not for the faint of heart. It should certainly be in everyone's library who is keeping bees recreationally. It might not be the best first book because it is A LOT of material and may be overwhelming. That said if you need to know something this is kind of like having the internet at your fingertips without having to log on.

The authors approach is refreshing and well thought out. A good read for the enthusiast like me who becomes obsessed and wants to learn every little thing, while being focused on the health and welfare of the honeybee. I do not keep bees only to get honey, but also to improve the ecosystem around me. Call me a tree-hugger, but I like to have abundant food to eat much of which requires pollination, and I am a tree-hugger. This book is more than a guide about how to maximize production at any cost.

I've read a stack of beekeeping books from Amazon and from my library. This is, hands down, the best book of the bunch. Ross Conrad covers beekeeping in an ethical way and teaches you not just how to keep bees, but how to partner with them and manage hives with integrity. His chapters on requeening and philosophies of requeening and various ways of managing hives were particularly useful, as was his discussion at the end of the book on GMOs. Thank you, Ross, for this amazing title.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Way too much philosophy about the world and not bees! 19 juin 2014
Par Steven Ellsworth - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book has a great deal of very good information. There are whole chapters discussing the need for "organic" agriculture and decentralization of the economy, etc. I suspect that the author is a top notch beekeeper but I do not believe that he is qualified to make the "global" conclusions that he does. He seems to make the conclusion, as many do, that "chemicals" are all bad. The fact remains that we are all made of chemicals, so is all of our food, natural or otherwise.

While the author seems to be a little 'preachy' at times about the "evils" of industrial beekeeping, he does provide an EXCELLENT resource for handling bees in a more natural and non-chemical way. He focuses on essential oils and 'soft' treatments. The best part of this book is that he explains WHY things work biologically.
I would recommend that any new beekeeper first purchase the "dummies" book, read it, and then purchase this book as well. It fills in gaps that I didn't even know that I had in my knowledge base.
