If this is your first year bee keeping, or you are a weathered beek, there’s always something new to learn. Every year you work with bees you learn more as you go through it. There are a lot of great references out there, from guide books to hands on training from local beekeepers but some times you need to see it visually in front of you. And that is where The Graphic Guide to Beekeeping comes in and is the perfect resource for visual learners.
Add some visual zing to your new beekeeping hobby with the very first graphic guide! These fully illustrated pages, perfect for visual learners, offer you complete, easy-to-understand whys and how-tos on every aspect of beekeeping, plus an entertaining approach. Thousands of detailed line drawings teach all you need to succeed with beekeeping, whether your goal is honey, beeswax, a backyard adventure, plant pollination, or all of the above. Detailed drawings let you peer closely at the bees’ world, in terms of seeing their anatomy, close-ups of their food sources, and the microscopic world in the hive. Covers choosing location, equipment, the best hive types, bee types, and other options; the beekeeping year and its tasks; keeping a healthy hive (or dozens); what to do when something goes wrong; how to harvest and process your honey, pollen, propolis, wax, and royal jelly; and more.
Laid out similar to a comic book or a graphic novel, there’s different sections that will help the newest beekeeper through the steps of installing a hive all the way down to processing honey at the end of the season. It gives you something to flip back to when you have questions and things change some. While beekeeping is a journey every season even for the most knowledgeable beekeeper, The Graphic Guide to Beekeeping is a great resource anywhere on the beekeeping journey.
