Book Review Haynes Bee Manual
Yes it is a manual by Haynes the same as all those car manuals,
Haynes now do manuals on all kinds of topics, like all there manuals its written and presented in a clear unfussy format
And as Bee books go and I have read a few this one I can recommend to anyone interested in starting with bees, it covers everything you need to know
plenty of good clear photos and easy to follow diagrams, there is an excellent section on hive problems and detailed explanations on splitting a colony, that's something that is on my agenda for this week, weather permitting. My only grip is it does not have any mention on Top Bar hives, If this had been available when I first started keeping bees it would have saved me a few costly mistakes.
So if you are new to Bee keeping or thinking about it put this book on your list, even if you are an old hand its still worth having on the shelf.
