The book details beekeeping problems, pests, parasites and diseases in depth and offers practical guidance rooted in beekeeping experience about preventing, controlling or curing threats to bee colonies to encourage more sustainable beekeeping practice. Environmental considerations, the effects of food, genetics, health and hygiene and the interactions of bees with the weather all combine to bring a hew and holistic approach to the topic.

Pesticides and Bees - Studies on the effects of agrichemicals on all bee species. Honey, Wax and Propolis - The constituents, harvesting and uses of bee products. Recipes - A wide variety of food uses and recipes for honey. This book is as much a guide to sources of additional information as it is a how to beekeeping guide. I was restarting my beekeeping here in 2015. I wanted a plain and straight to the point book which was up to date and appropriate in the Irish context.

Honey bee hives now grace the White House Lawn, the roof of Chicago City Hall, the National Arboretum, and the top of the Fairmont Hotel. Even Hagen-Daazs has gotten into the act with its well-funded campaign, Help the Honey Bees. This comprehensive reference will appeal to both the experienced beekeeper who seeks help with specific issues and the novice eager to get started.

The Honey Bee Health Coalition came together from all sectors to accelerate solutions to improve bee health. As the go-to organization at the intersection of honey bees and pollinated crops, PAm works to enhance the health and vitality of honey bees while improving crop production. The HBHC will allow PAm to accomplish even more than we can accomplish alone.

In 2013, a European moratorium suspended the use of neonicotinoids on four of the crops pollinated by bees: rapeseed, sunflower, maize and cotton. Other cereals, such as wheat in particular, are pollinated solely by the wind. Yet these targeted bans-currently only enforced in Europe-may not be enough to stem the decline in bee populations. This parasite, a vector for many viruses, attaches itself to bees and pierces their skin to feed on hemolymph (the blood equivalent of insects), says Biron. One of the viruses transmitted by this mite, CBPV (Chronic Bee Paralysis Virus), causes tremors that are occasionally mistaken by beekeepers for the effects of neonicotinoids.

Commercial hives are arranged so that bees build honeycombs in uniform shapes and maximise honey production. By contrast, Open Source Beehives, which resemble small squat houses, allow bees to build their combs in more natural curving shapes. We have designed hives to optimise the health of the honeybee colony and lower the stress. This article appeared in print under the headline Happy, healthy bees live in wired-up hives.
