An accessible guide covering all things bee – origin and evolution, the complexity of the hive, the honey-making process, and the queen, workers and drones.
There is increasing interest and awareness in bees and the consequences of their declining population. This is an accessible guide covering all things bee – origin and evolution, the complexity of the hive, the honey-making process, and the queen, workers and drones. For anyone who’s ever wondered why bees swarm or is intrigued by the facts that bees have a concept of zero, can count to four, and will go on a health food diet when ill. The Honey Bee gives an in-depth exploration of this incredible engineer and reveals in superb detail the amazing story of these insects. It explains why they play such an important role in the well-being of the planet generally and to the health and life of the plant world and ecosystems in particular.Author and beekeeper David Cramp lives in Wellington.
