Through its clear explanatory text and admirable illustration this book skilfully lays out the elements of good practice in tropical bee-keeping. It explains both traditional techniques using low-cost hives and more advanced methods, pointing out the most appropriate system for the level of investment the bee-keeper wishes to make. The author has a wealth of knowledge, developed through years of thoughtful observation and practical experiences working with bee-keepers all over Africa and with his own hives in Kenya. Existing bee-keepers wishing to improve their techniques and those looking to start a new bee-keeping enterprise will find the book invaluable.
