Bees are useful insects. Besides their tasty honey and quality wax, they are indispensable for pollination in some crops. In crops like avocado, cotton, and sunflower, bee pollination actually increases seed and fruit yields. Beekeeping provides people in rural areas with additional sources of income and nutrition. Beekeeping as a business is a useful and easy reference manual for all there is to know about keeping bees. The book with a handy spiral binding describes the history of beekeeping, bee biology and how a colony works, which plants they pollinate, various types of hives and how to construct them, how to harvest the beehive products, what to wear and what to put on a bee sting. It is printed on a thick, coated paper so it can survive outdoor conditions or honey stains. Nice touch! Beekeeping as a business. R Jones.
