Beekeeping requires understanding, commitment, and attention to detail. Laying the groundwork for a successful hive is essential, and demands a keen appreciation of critical areas like hive management, breed choice, and health requirements.
Bees often disguise problems, though, making recognizing trouble in the crucial, initial stages that much more difficult. Whether you're a newcomer or an old hand, The Beekeeper's Problem Solver provides the information you need to nip problems in the bud, or avoid them in the first place.
Author, experienced beekeeper, and apiary expect, James E. Tew, explains 100 common problems faced by beekeepers. He clearly spells out their underlying causes, and how to solve all of them. Each one is tackled in depth, with photographs and diagrams, as well as a wide range of practical tips and useful insights. Don’t lose your hive to something preventable, just grab your problem solver!
James E. Tew has been keeping bees for over 40 years. He has a Ph.D. in Entomology and is currently a Consulting Professor at Auburn University, where he conducts beekeeping educational programs and maintains social media systems that support the Alabama beekeeping industry. Recently retired from The Ohio State University, where he worked for 33 years as an Associate Professor focusing on pollination ecology and the use of honeybees and native bees as pollination agents, James gives lectures and workshops for beekeepers in the US and UK, runs the website One Tew Bee (www.onetew.com), and has written numerous books, including Wisdom for Beekeepers, as well as articles for Bee Culture magazine.
