Honey Bee Biology and Beekeeping explains bee biology, what bees do, and provides the tools which make it possible for an individual to successfully manage bee colonies. The author has concentrated on the "why" aspects of bee biology so that the reader understands "when" and "how" certain things must be done to colonies. Bees and beekeeping are explained in a manner meaningful to a person who lacks an extensive background or knowledge of biology. Yet the author has not oversimplified bee biology to the point where it is meaningless to the serious beekeeper or informed biologist.
  • I've never written a review on any product I've bought before because I tend to be a bit hard and critical on products. However with this product and my experience thus far with beekeeping I felt I should. I have ordered est. 7 books on the subject ($200.00) in the last 9 mos and found them all over priced and lacking in depth and knowledge. I was hopeful after reading the reviews on Honey Bee Biology but was still prepared to be disappointed and waste more money. To my great surprise I found the book amazingly well edited, easy to read and full of the education/knowledge that all the other books did not contain. The book could be priced for twice as much and still be worth it. This is my first year in the beekeeping hobby/business and I have abandoned/shelved all my other books and refer to this one only. Many thanks to all those that helped produce and bring this product to market. There is nothing negative I can say

  • I am used to purchasing the little soft back $15-$20 type of DIY beekeeping guide book(s) and this is not that. This book is more like an encyclopedia with way more info than I have ever been presented with, even after attending "bee school". I highly recommend this easy to read and comprehend title for those serious about becoming a student of bees instead of just having bees to steal some honey from. Get it, read it, reread it, refer back to it always and help save our lady bees!!!

  • I purchased this book because I was interested in teaching a basic course of honey bee biology and beekeeping to a small group of undergraduate students. The book is comprehensive in scope, very well organized, and perfect as an introductory text. All of the students have expressed how much they like this book. It is a small class but the consensus is unanimous. I agree that as an introductory text this is an outstanding choice, and I do not think there are other viable alternatives.

  • Clear, concise and engagingly written, this excellent look at bees, bee biology/physiology and behaviour is richly illustrated and cleverly organized. I especially applaud the way in which the most recent research is presented, very readable and clear in its implications for the beekeeper. I was especially interested in the way the book explored foraging behaviours, and will use that information to plan my forage plantings next year (the country fields are so empty of bee forage now that you have to purpose-plant forage for them...). Meanwhile, all those of you city or country who want to give the bees a boost, plant up some spring flowering heather, some catmint (catmint, not catnip), some sunflowers and caryopteris (Bluebeard, very pretty). If we all put those in our gardens or on our balconies, it would really help build populations of all the pollinators! Great book, fascinating read.

  • A book that combines the science of bees (entomology) and practical experience. Dr Caron comes with sixty years of practical experience in beekeeping and a lot of years as a professor of entomology and beekeeping. Well worth the read, but more importantly a worthy reference for your future years of beekeeping.

  • I was interested in becoming a beekeeper but had not understanding about bees or what a beekeeper actually was. , I found this book to be a very valuable tool to help be understand bees and what it takes to care for them. One can not make the right decision without getting all the facts up front, and this book does give you all the facts. A must book to read.

  • We seem to understand mammals more easily because we "swim in the same water" so to speak. I think you can be a good dog owner with a lot less knowledge. Bugs with stingers organized by castes are foreign to us. News reporters and movie producers have cast bees in some pretty negative stories, even scary.
    But honeybees are pretty gentle, easy to work with if you understand their interests and don't oppose them. Read the book, be their friend and enjoy some honey.
    I say it should be the first book read after someone commits to being a beekeeper because it's not inexpensive. Most new-bees explore beekeeping via internet articles, magazines and YouTube videos. You should attend some local beekeeping association meetings as well. If you find your interest growing and want to get started - this is a great book to launch your education.
    This book is well written and complete. It's well organized and includes up to date information. There are lots of useful photos and drawings which add to the instruction. This is a text book. It is not a "how to" book. It's used in many college level introductory level beekeeping courses.
    That said, starting with chapter eleven it moves to the technical side of serving bees as the bees personal manager. Because the books covers bee biology and "hive think" first, the how-to-do-it sections that follow are set on a good foundation.

  • Amazing science written beautifully. I found myself time and again reading passages aloud to my wife
