leaders in the beekeeping community

however, the fact that heads in the beekeeping similarity continue to write that mites are , in that they consume bee (bee blood), instead of living off the fat body of bees (the equivalent of the liver in humans), especially grates on my nerves

Great information, narrator not for me!

The information was straight forward, organized, and a good introduction to beekeeping. The narrator inflection on every sentence made it very hard for me to listen too. However, they information was good.

explanation of the history of bees and beekeeping

He starts with a brief explanation of the history of bees and beekeeping as well as bee biology and basic behavior (which is important to understand to know what the heck they are doing at any given time)Then he clearly explains what types of bees you can order and in what "packaging" and the equipment that you need as a beginner and what its use is.

if you are bran-new to beekeeping.

This bee work is well worth having if you are brand-new to beekeeping. It has a little bit of everything needed to get going. Simplicity and purity are its symbols. It is not audible for an experienced large scale generator...that is a significantly different world. I love it and it is an excellent resource to start excellent and very useful.

work for beginner, backyard, and urban beekeepers

The good reference audible for beginning beekeepers and backyard beekeepers I would recommend stating a few other works in order to get a wider view of how to be a beekeeper. The only refutation I found with the part is that it has a very small print that is often printed over other intention features on the pages.

This audible is an encyclopedia of bee keeping

This book is an encyclopedia of beekeeping. This audible is full of wonderful color detail. Other like works have but nothing like "The Backyard Beekeeper". The author absolutely has his point of view on the sizes of beehives and pushes it strongly, almost to the separation of other ideas. Still, this division is packed full of information and an excellent employer.

A good basic audible about beekeeping

This work explores a lot of issues that a person counting beekeeping might not be aware of, not just about beekeeping itself, but the communication you might have with neighbors. I would recommend this audible to anyone who wants to listen about the science, equipment, and skills necessary to be a successful bee hobbyist or professional.

Easy Beekeeping.

The audible is easy to understand. It goes into a fascinated level of detail so you have more than straightforward guidelines, but not so much detail that you're devastated. The quality of the audiobook is very nice.

This was a very comprehensive work by CAPTIVATING HISTORY and was instrumental in my conclusion about whether or not to keep bees. Highly recommend this great work by the author. .
