The book is aimed at both the novice and experienced beekeeper in Australia and explains in detail the steps required to manage colonies of bees. Supported by over 350 photographs and drawings, each action to be performed is explained in detail with photographs showing the steps as well as the final result. Many potential beekeepers are unclear about the equipment they need to buy and how to obtain their first colony of bees. The first chapters in the book explain in detail the equipment needed as well as equipment that may be useful later on as their confidence and experience grows. The chapter 'Your First Bees' explains how to obtain bees, where to locate them in the garden, and the basics of colony management. In addition to chapters on keeping bees, there are detailed chapters on the life cycle of the honey bee, extracting honey, the bee-friendly garden, entering honey in competitions, native bees and rearing queens. The result is a comprehensive manual that includes material not available in other Australian, North American or European books and is the ultimate Australian reference source.

About the Author:

Robert Owen was introduced to the world of beekeeping in 2002 and hasn't looked back. At first beekeeping was a hobby but it has now evolved into a family business, Bob's Beekeeping Supplies, that offers beekeeping equipment and education. Through his business, Robert has met and talked with hundreds of hobby and professional beekeepers. This book is the culmination of his own years of expertise and experience and also draws on the individual tales he has heard of the challenges and successes of managing honey bees in various environments.

Review:

"a standout reference for the new beekeeper...Even experienced beekeepers will learn a thing or two...contain(s) a wealth of information and is better value than many bee books currently on the market" The Amateur Beekeeper
