Beekeeping is the most fascinating and absorbing of pastimes. This book developed from the course that I have presented to new beekeepers at my local association in Yorkshire for several years. One of the joys of beekeeping is the diversity of approach and this is to be celebrated. But there are two fundamental premises that govern my beekeeping and underpin the ethos behind the book. I believe that a sound knowledge of the natural history of honeybees is essential to being a good beekeeper and the first priority of the beekeeper is to keep the bees healthy. A colony of healthy bees will produce honey whether you want it or not. The book gives a complete guide for the beginner and is sufficiently detailed to help prepare a new beekeeper to the level required by the BBKA basic assessment.

A world without bees would be much less colourful, with fewer plants and flowers. But that's not all -- food would be in much shorter supply, and available in much less variety. While the media focuses on colony-collapse disorder and the threats to honey bees specifically, the real danger is much greater: all bees are at risk. And because of the integral role these insects play in the ecology of our planet, we may be at risk as well. The life of Laurence Packer, a melittologist at Toronto's York University, revolves around bees, whether he's searching for them under leaves in a South American jungle or identifying new species in the desert heat of Arizona. Packer often finds himself in exotic and even dangerous locales, risking snake bites, sunstroke, and even the ire of other scientists. Everywhere he travels, he discovers the same unsettling trend: bees are disappearing. And since bees are responsible for up to one-third of our food supply, the consequences are frightening.
