The honeybee not only produces the rich, golden sweetener that we love so much, but it is one of the key pollinators of flowering plants and fruit trees upon which man depends. Today, bees are under threat - largely through human interference and manipulation. By understanding the honeybee it is possible to help both the bee and our wider environment. This book is designed to be a first step in explaining the honeybee and the work of the beekeeper, both in rural and urban situations. Anyone with time and dedication can become a good beekeeper. The rest of us can help by planting bee friendly plants in their gardens, allotments and window boxes.
