Beekeeping Books Worth Reading

Beekeeping Books Worth Reading

There are a plethora of books on the subject of beekeeping. Many people ask what they should read on taking-up beekeeping. Our discriminator between what we think is worth reading, and what might help light your smoker is simple: Did the author make his or her living out of keeping bees, and if so, were they successful at it? These two criteria limit the field to three which we would recommend as essential reading:

The Hive and the Honey Bee

Author: Roy A. Gout

Publisher: Dadant & Sons (July 1992)

ISBN-10: 0915698099

Sixty Years With Bees

Author: Donald Sims

Honey Farming

We would recommend that you buy these from Northern Bee Books.
