Top bar beekeeping really is 'beekeeping for everyone' - including people with mobility problems, bad backs, or a general reluctance to lift boxes: there is no heavy lifting once your hive is in place, as honey is harvested by the comb rather than by the box. Top bar hives are good for bees, good for the beekeeper and good for the environment. In this book, I will show you how easy it can be to build your own hive from scratch, using new or reclaimed timber and a few simple tools. If you can make a decent job of putting up a shelf, you can build yourself a fully functioning hive that bees will be proud to call home. By the author of The Barefoot Beekeeper.

This is a presentation of the scientific principles underlying beekeeping management and their practical application in different conditions. It gives an account of honeybees as a world resource, both in producing honey and other hive products and as pollinators that increase yields of seed and fruit crops. It tries for the first time to present an integrated picture, with a brief summary of its history, of world beekeeping in various continents. It is the authors intention that readers will experiment with new ways in which beekeeping methods and equipment might be improved still further and with the application of new technologies and materials seek fresh conceptual approaches to beekeeping problems.
