Organic Approaches to Modern ApicultureBook | 2nd ed.
Today's beekeepers face unprecedented challenges, a fact that is now front-page news with the spread of "colony collapse disorder." Newly introduced pests like varroa and tracheal mites have made chemical treatment of hives standard practice, but pest resistance is building, which in turn creates demand for new and even more toxic chemicals. In fact, there is evidence that chemical treatments are making matters worse.It's time for a new approach. Now revised and updated with new resources and including full-color photos throughout, "Natural Beekeeping" offers all the latest information in a book that has already proven invaluable for organic beekeepers.
