The honey bee around & about

£14.99

Product description

'Here is a companion volume to Celia's first book 'The honey bee inside out' which covered the anatomy and physiology of the honey bee. 'The honey bee around and about' begins by looking at the origin of the honey bees and continues with a description of the different sub species. Disease is often a neglected topic but it is an important factor for the beekeeper to bear in mind. Celia details the major diseases affecting honey bee's as well as other pests include the mite, 'Varroa destructor'. The honey bee's major function is as a pollinator of flowers, both in agriculture and the wider environment, and the final chapters look at the relationship between bees and flowers and the resultant products from the hive.'
