Publisher's Summary

The number-one Amazon best seller in both featured categories "Entomology" and "Insects and Spiders"
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look at my audiobook. If you have a taste for honey or an adventurous side, maybe you have thought of becoming a beekeeper. What would you really be in for, though? Is it really a job, or is it a fun way to get your own honey? Well, it's really both.
Being a beekeeper is a lot of work, but it also has a lot of benefits. Anyone can do it, as long as they know to be prepared. You can't just wake up one day and decided to be a beekeeper and start immediately, without knowing what you are doing.
That's why I have written this book! Here you will find out which tools you need to be a beekeeper, what to expect from your hive, how to harvest your honey and how to protect the hive from various problems and invaders. I'll teach you what types of bees are best to keep, the jobs of each bee in the hive, how to choose and position your hives and more.
Apiculture is complicated and very involving on even the smallest scale. But it is incredibly rewarding and can be a unique part of your life, as well as a beneficial influence to the environment, both locally and globally.
Oh, and eating the honey from your very own hive is rather wonderful too!
When I started keeping bees, I spent a lot of time and money on a lot of books, before I was sure that apiculture was going to be right for me and my family. This beginners book,summarizes the essential information I have learned over the years, and was written to help you decide if beekeeping will fit into your life.
Best wishes, Frank

A good brief overview

It is really brief only one hour long which doesn't mean it's going to give you all the information you need to do any one task but enough to know how to go about starting it and looking up the information you might need

Well read. The author comes across as very experienced, not just full of read facts.
