The art of beekeeping is an extremely rewarding practice and contrary to common belief, extremely safe and easy. All you need is some guidance to get you started and this is exactly what this guide provides. This easy-to-follow guide is carefully tailored toward "bee-ginners" as well as more advanced apiarists.

Very basic without any depth.

Very rapidly read leaving you with little information on why you do some of the steps in beekeeping. Also very pro medication of your bees and little to no debate as to why.

very informative and easy to follow

I have read it a couple times now and plan to read it a couple more in preparation of my first experience. Although, I know I will be looking up pictures and graphics online.

Simple and informative

In depth without making it sound complicated. Starts off repeating the same information during the 2 short, first sections; but then improves greatly.

Repetitive, but good summary for the beginner.

The intro and first section are almost identical word for word. Otherwise it's comprehensive and a good resource for the beginner.

Loved it!

Very good information and presented in a way that is easy to understand. Complete instructions from buying or building a hive to making lotions with the Bee's wax.
