Library Journal Review

Many introductory works on beekeeping discuss some of the issues that may surface with a new hive, but this single volume covers the 100 most general beekeeping problems and their solutions. Tew, an entomologist and consulting -professor at -Auburn University in -Alabama, bee blogger -(onetew.com), and author (Wisdom for Beekeepers), has worked with bees for almost 40 years and draws from both personal and professional experience. Chapters are divided into basic areas such as equipment, queen production, pest control, and producing honey. Within each section, issues are laid out as questions in lay terms, such as "I don't know where to get my first bees," "Wasps are attacking the bees," and "Honey has granulated in the comb." The author accompanies each problem with a cause and solution; full-color photographs and a glossary provide additional information. -VERDICT Newer beekeepers looking for a quick reference guide will find that this book covers most common problems. Experienced beekeepers may want more specific works.-Kristi -Chadwick, Massachusetts Lib. Syst., South Deerfield © Copyright 2015.
