HowExpert Guide to Honey Bees & Beekeeping is a great starter guide for those who are simply interested in honey bees or those who are interested in becoming beekeepers themselves. It describes the science of the honey bee itself, as well as the inner workings of each member and how they work together to survive.
The colony, as a whole, can be treated as its own organism because of how the honey bees work together to perform tasks as a social species. Beekeepers have been observing such behaviors for generations, and I would like to pass on the knowledge to others. The beekeeping portion of this guide provides a wealth of knowledge on how to start your own apiary.
Learn about all the equipment necessary for your operation, how to inspect your hives, what a beekeeper does throughout the year, a short guide to pests and diseases, bee-friendly plants, and how to extract honey and wax from your hives. All of this information can be found in this book. Just a warning, this hobby can cause one to become very passionate about one very small and fuzzy insect. It is not uncommon for a beekeeper to want to be constantly learning about honey bees.
