The Bee Book - Dorling Kindersley
Following the clear and pleasing to read format of other Dorling & Kindersley's books, The Bee Book is a guide to everything bee with information on how you can help save the bees in lots of practical ways and discover the incredible science behind honey bees, beekeeping, and bees in the wild.
An intensely visual exploration of the big questions in bee science and ecology: why are bees such great pollinators? how do they make honey? is a swarm dangerous? how does a bumblebee fly? what is killing bees across the world and how can we stop it? Most importantly the book features some practical tips to adapting your outdoor space - no matter how small - to provide food and habitats for bees, with step-by-step projects for making bee homes and hotels, the most bee-friendly plants to grow and accompanying planting plans for pots and borders.
If you want to go a step further, the book also features a comprehensive beginner's guide to beekeeping with all the information and step-by-step techniques you’d need to set up and manage a hive and collect its honey. With even an array of recipes for making the best use of hive products.
