"Bees are remarkable little insects that have been around for about 100 million years or so. They perform a valuable and vital service to the plants they visit and, ultimately, to human beings and other animals, for they aid pollination through their foraging activities and thus ensure the spread and continuation of plant species. Some bees, such as bumblebees and honeybees, are termed social bees, whereby hundreds or even thousands of the creatures are able to live together in close harmony, building the internal structures of their home, and laying in food sticks to tide the colony over in leaner times. This very food - honey - is another reason why bees are so important to us human beings, for the precious substance has been proved to have nutritional and medicinal benefits over thousands of years. Opinions differ where the minutiae of beekeeping are concerned, though the basic rules continue to hold true whatever the method or methods employed: understand the way honeybees live, and work with them; use good-quality tools and good practices; take sound advice but, as you become more experienced, modify it to suit your own needs and those of your bees. This book is intended to be no more than an introduction to the world of bees and to show the beginner what caring for them involves."--From publisher.
