"A wonderful, thoughtful and original book. A very valuable guide to natural beekeeping, full of reference for bees, and excellent practical and feasible advice for beekeepers." --Bees for Development Journal --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

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-colour 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 programme 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. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

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.

This book had a lot of good information. But it's not an all-information source. Don't make it your only book. The book fails to describe in much detail the equipment or tools you will need. The author rambles on and on about the ethics of organic farming and bee-keeping and sarcastically in a round about way discusses why you should make the choices he has made, but that it's ultimately your choice, but, ya know, make the organic choice.

I think most of us wouldn't be reading the book if we hadn't drawn many of those conclusions ourselves. Why not to use miticides, not to use HFCS, why to be gentle and slow with the bees and on and on. These are all very good topics and deserve a mention. They take up much more of the book than is needed and in the process the details you really need are lost. I was looking for MORE information on what I could feed (aside from the commercially available products) and how I could control pests organically. I distinctly remember very little information on screened bottom boards (again, lacking the details on equipment) and that being something I was desperate for information for.

Aside from those set backs, it's a good book. You will take away some important information and that makes it worth reading. If you're in the fence about organic bee-keeping then read this book and others like it!

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.

As a beekeeper that has only one year under my belt, I found this book had some interesting information. It is more philosophical that practical. That's fine if it is philosophy you are looking for. If you are looking for practical nuts and bolts information on how to raise bees organically, this is not the book for you.

The author undoubtedly knows his stuff about bees. He has tons of experience and is a good writer. I enjoyed the way he focuses on sustainability in beekeeping and is open to new ideas. I like the way he offers multiple points of view on how best to handle each kind of problem you may encounter, from insect pests, to neighbors who hate bees, etc.
