Beekeping - Pure and Simple

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
Are modern beekeeping methods partly to blame for the poor state of health of our honeybees?

Phil Chandler, author of The Barefoot Beekeeper, suggests that we need to take a fresh - and more holistic - look at the way we work with bees.

If you are interested in learning a more natural approach to beekeeping, this is a good place to start.

About Philip Chandler

I discovered beekeeping as a result of my involvement with the anti-GM campaigns of the 1990s. Since then, bees have come under increasing threat from agricultural pesticides and from what many regard as inappropriate treatments with synthetic medications, resulting in widespread 'disappearances'.

In 2007, I wrote The Barefoot Beekeeper - my vision of what is wrong and what needs to change in our attitude and approach to bees. Since then, bees and beekeeping have occupied a great deal of my time and energy, none of which I consider wasted.

I hope my writing will inspire you to take up 'natural beekeeping'.

Reviews of Beekeping - Pure and Simple by Philip Chandler

Joe Da Silva reviewed on Oct. 16, 2012

I just finished reading "An Introduction to Natural Bee-keeping" written at an earlier date, by the same author before reading this book, and I would recommend you read it first before reading this book.

This is another short little introductory book focused on natural bee-keeping. This book re-iterates a few items described in the shorter book, but also goes into more details on some items, plus gives you pointers and links you can follow-up on further if you actually have an interest in reading-up or actually learning more about bee-keeping in more detail.
If you like to read short and brief books before actually getting involved in many details, these two books seem like a good introduction.

WOW! Tons of information about bees and their habits. Also includes an introduction to natural beekeeping with lots of internet links to find more information at the end of the book.
