In light of the dwindling honey bee population, this century-old guide is more relevant than ever. Written by the scion of a celebrated family of beekeepers, the profusely illustrated volume contains reader-friendly information on bee anatomy, the social structure of bee communities, different types of hives and how they function, honey production, wintertime beekeeping, and other practical matters. AUTHOR: Camille Pierre Dadant (1851-1938) was the son of Charles Dadant, one of the fathers of modern beekeeping techniques, inventor of the Dadant beehive, and founder of one of the first beekeeping equipment manufacturers. The business is still extant and run by the family, as is their publication, The American Bee Journal.
