Beekeeping for Dummies by Howland Blackiston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Great basic book for the novice/backyard beekeeper. Lots of step by step instructions as well as detailed discussions on bees and their behaviors, equipment, hive types, raising queens, and harvesting. I also like that the author explains the different types of medicines that can be used for diseases and pest issues while explaining their side effects and steers the reader toward holistic methods.
Worth having on hand as a go-to guide.
