Practical Beekeeping in New Zealand by Andrew Matheson & Murray Reid.
For more than 25 years Practical Beekeeping in New Zealand has been the only comprehensive guide to keeping bees in New Zealand. It provides both amateur and commercial beekeepers with the details on honey bee management throughout the year, advice on handling hive products and information about many other beekeeping subjects.
Now, in its first new edition since 1997, this invaluable book has been fully updated to incorporate the latest information available, including new approaches to beekeeping needed since the parasitic varroa mite became established in New Zealand and changed the nature of beekeeping forever. Enhancing the text is a large number of new illustrations.
In addition to being a guide for beekeepers, Practical Beekeeping in New Zealand will appeal to anyone interested in apiculture or deciding whether to keep bees, as well as to farmers and horticulturalists wanting to learn more about crop pollination.
