    My first recommendation is a book that comes with a preface. Until I came across this book, I NEVER recommended or bothered to read anything from this series of books because they always seemed too basic for the topics but I don’t find that to have been the case for this version:

    Beekeeping for Dummies – It quickly breaks down the terminology so it won’t be so confusing, and then essentially puts into one place a good, concise compilation of all the valid writings on honeybees in the last 100 years or so. I went from almost zero knowledge of beekeeping to being able to confidently read other books and articles on the subject without wondering what I was reading every other sentence.

    Oh, a bit of trivia for you. There were significantly more books published on bees and beekeeping before 1900 than from 1900 to present. That’s right, even with the advances in publishing in the past few years with all the ebooks, etc., there were still more published before any of us(and often our grandparents) were born.


    Thank You QueenBee
