About the Author:

Kim Flottum brings a background of more than a decade of plant science, honey bee research, and basic farming to his 30 years as the editor of Bee Culture magazine, where his main occupation is finding the answers to the multitude of questions that beginning, intermediate, and even advanced and experienced beekeepers bring to the table. He teaches beginning and advanced beekeeping courses, travels extensively to educate and lecture, and contributes to a variety of other publications on the basics of honey bees and beekeeping biology, the business of bees and pollination, producing and using varietal honeys, and a host of other subjects. His books, magazine articles, interviews, and blogs are widely read for both their fundamental and advanced contribution to beekeeping knowledge. His magazine platform gives voice to his social commentary on topics ranging from genetically modified foods to pesticide abuse to both good and bad government regulations in the industry. He is beekeeping's leading advocate for fundamental honey bee safety, including insuring excellent honey bee health, providing extraordinary forage, and minimizing the use of agricultural pesticides.

Review:

"Kim Flottum’s expert advice is a comprehensive introduction to getting started with your own backyard hives. The book itself is also visually appealing: large photographs, illustrations, and callouts appear on nearly every page."  - Keeping Backyard Bees
