With their vital pollinating activities, bees are one of the most ecologically useful and important insects, and beekeeping must rate as one of the most interesting and satisfying hobbies. The structure and hierarchy of a beehive and the behaviour of bees is fascinating, and the end product, honey, is a fitting reward for a beekeeper?s care. Since the decline of the honeybee worldwide owing to disease and intensive farming, there has been a huge re-surge of interest in beekeeping, and many new beekeepers have taken up the challenge of keeping bees, particularly in urban areas. They can enjoy the honey that is produced, and help the environment at the same time by supporting the bees? essential role of pollinating plants and flowers. This book outlines the relationship of bees and people, different types and species of bees, and explains in a practical way all the factors to consider before starting to keep bees. In the early chapters of this volume, the author suggests suitable sites to house the hives, which can include small gardens or even rooftops, and the best kind of hives to buy. The section includes the way the hive works, handling the bees, and how to get your bees and transfer them to the hive. A useful calendar, packed with information, shows you at a glance when to inspect, maintain and repair the structure of the hive to ensure that the bees are happy and healthy all through the year. The bees? hard work culminates in wax combs bursting with honey, and a detailed harvesting plan lists the equipment needed to harvest the golden liquid, from extraction to bottling, from storage to uses for the honey. As well as disease, mites and poisoning, there are other problems that the novice beekeeper needs to be aware of, including wax moth, brood diseases, and pests such as other insects, mice, birds, bears, skunks and raccoons. The author explains how anticipating these situations and preparing for them can avoid losing the entire hive. He also outlines how to help the bees become more productive, by providing a bee-friendly garden with plants and flowers that are rich in nectar and pollen, to provide food early and late in the year when it is scarce. Finally there is a section for those interested in taking beekeeping further by using the many products that bees supply, entering competitions, rearing queens and breeding queens. This captivating volume will inspire the budding beekeeper and provide all the information necessary to start a colony, look after it and harvest the products of the hive. As well as enjoying an engaging hobby, beekeepers are doing a hugely important job by helping the environment, and ensuring the continuance of our food supply

This book is about how to keep bees in a natural and practical system where they do not require treatments for pests and diseases and only minimal interventions. It is also about simple practical beekeeping. It is about reducing your work. It is not a main-stream beekeeping book. Many of the concepts are contrary to "conventional" beekeeping. The techniques presented here are streamlined through decades of experimentation, adjustments and simplification. The content was written and then refined from responding to questions on bee forums over the years so it is tailored to the questions that beekeepers, new and experienced, have. It is divided into three volumes and this edition contains all three: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced.

In the summer of 2016 retired broadcaster Paul Ashton made an astounding discovery at a car boot sale in Sussex. He found a copy of Sherlock Holmes’s Practical Handbook of Bee Culture, and bought it for £2. No other copy of this legendary volume – the only book Holmes wrote – has ever come to light. The Handbook is the journal kept by Holmes from 1904 to 1912. 1904 was the year he retired from active investigation and moved to a farmhouse in East Dean. In 1912 he came out of retirement and left East Dean in order to outwit the German spy network in Britain on the eve of World War I. The journal is, of course, principally the record of his bee-keeping activities, but Holmes has also included a wealth of astonishing information – some of it highly indiscreet – about the following: – his marriage to Mrs Hudson – their social life in Sussex – his meetings with Lenin, Pablo Picasso, Edward VII, Rudyard Kipling, George Bernard Shaw and Sigmund Freud, among other distinguished figures – two investigations that he carried out, even though officially retired – two attempts that were made on his life – his involvement in the Jack the Ripper murders, the Dr Crippen affair, the theft of the Mona Lisa, and the Siege of Sidney Street – his correspondence with some of the famous scientists of the day – his active support of the Suffragette movement – the regular updating of his casebooks of famous criminals of the nineteenth century – a number of photographs, some taken by him and four actually showing him – the steady deterioration of his health over the period. Both the owner of the Handbook and the publisher are honoured to be able to make this unique treasure available to the general public.
