"How to Keep Bees" is a detailed and accessible guide to bee-keeping and apiary management, with information on starting out, constructing an apiary, acquiring bees, and much more. Written in simple, plain language and profusely illustrated, this comprehensive handbook constitutes a must-have for modern readers with practical interest in the subject. Contents include: "Introduction", "Pasturage", "Location of the Hives", "Hives", "Frames, Supers, Etc.", "Honey Boards", "Bee Escapes", "Drone and Queen Trap", "Smoker", "Foundation Fasteners", "Honey Extractor", "Hove Tools", "Comb Foundation", "Clothing", "Uniformity of Appliances", "Making a Start", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on Bee-keeping.
