The book is aimed at both the novice and experienced beekeeper in Australia and explains in detail the steps required to manage colonies of bees. Supported by over 350 photographs and drawings, each action to be performed is explained in detail with photographs showing the steps as well as the final result. Many potential beekeepers are unclear about the equipment they need to buy and how to obtain their first colony of bees. The first chapters in the book explain in detail the equipment needed as well as equipment that may be useful later on as their confidence and experience grows. The chapter ‘Your First Bees’ explains how to obtain bees, where to locate them in the garden, and the basics of colony management. In addition to chapters on keeping bees, there are detailed chapters on the life cycle of the honey bee, extracting honey, the bee-friendly garden, entering honey in competitions, native bees and rearing queens. The result is a comprehensive manual that includes material not available in other Australian, North American or European books and is the ultimate Australian reference source.

Apiculture (from Latin: apis "bee") is the maintenance of honey bee colonies, commonly in hives, by humans. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees in order to collect their honey and other products that the hive produces (including beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly), to pollinate crops, or to produce bees for sale to other beekeepers. A location where bees are kept is called an apiary or "bee yard." Depictions of humans collecting honey from wild bees date to 15,000 years ago. Beekeeping in pottery vessels began about 9,000 years ago in North Africa. Domestication is shown in Egyptian art from around 4,500 years ago. Simple hives and smoke were used and honey was stored in jars, some of which were found in the tombs of pharaohs such as Tutankhamun. It wasn't until the 18th century that European understanding of the colonies and biology of bees allowed the construction of the moveable comb hive so that honey could be harvested without destroying the entire colony. Collecting honey from wild bee colonies is one of the most ancient human activities and is still practiced by aboriginal societies in parts of Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. In Africa, honeyguide birds have evolved a mutualist relationship with humans, leading them to hives and participating in the feast. This suggests honey harvesting by humans may be of great antiquity. Some of the earliest evidence of gathering honey from wild colonies is from rock paintings, dating to around Upper Paleolithic (13,000 BCE). Gathering honey from wild bee colonies is usually done by subduing the bees with smoke and breaking open the tree or rocks where the colony is located, often resulting in the physical destruction of the nest.

Langstroth on the Hive and the Honey-Bee, A Bee Keeper's Manual

The Original 1853 Edition

Author: L. L. Langstroth

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9781936830947

Category: Education

Page: 294

Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth is considered 'the father of American beekeeping.' The claim is probably too modest. His design for a beehive is used to this day around the world and is still called the -Langstroth hive.- Langstroth's innovations allowed beekeepers to manage their bees to the degree that one might even call them 'domesticated.' He found ways to collect honey without disturbing the bees. He discovered how to compel the bees to focus on making honey rather than honeycomb. He discovered how to keep the queen from laying eggs in frames which contained honey for human consumption. Since the days of Langstroth, beekeeping has come a long way--but not so long that anyone has completely done away with Langstroth's innovations. Thus, his book will contain many points where our understanding of bees and our technology in working with them has been superseded by new developments, but it still contains a mass of wisdom for modern day apiarists.If for nothing else, it is a window into the sophisticated minds of people who lived almost two hundred years ago, who managed to accomplish so much without once using a search engine! This edition is based on a careful reconstruction of Langstroth's first version of his book on keeping bees. It retains nearly all of the features of the original, including its flaws. Unless it would cause confusion to modern readers, every other aspect of this text matches Langstroth's original, 1853, edition.
