For more than 25 years 'Practical Beekeeping in New Zealand' has been the only comprehensive guide to keeping bees in NZ. It provides both amateur and commercial beekeepers with details on honey bee management throughout the year, advice on handling hives, products and information about many other beekeeping subjects.
- This is the bible of beekeeping and has a huge reputation (including internationally).
- A respected classic that’s now in full-colour.
- Respected and authoritative authors, who between them have over 60 years of experience as beekeeping professionals in educational, advisory, scientific and regulatory roles, in New Zealand and around the world.
Now, in its first new editions since 1997, this invaluable book has been fully updated to incorporate the latest information available, including new approaches to beekeeping needed since the parasitic varroa mite became established in NZ and changed the nature of beekeeping forever. Enhancing the text is a large number of new illustrations.
In addition to being a guide for beekeepers, 'Practical Beekeeping in New Zealand' will appeal to anyone interested in apiculture or deciding whether to keep bees, as well as farmers and horticulturalists wanting to learn more about crop pollination.
