Product Information

The author had the privilege of visiting many of the most extensive queen breeders of America, both north and south, and tried to present all the best methods of practice in use in these various.

Although the book was originally published in the 1910s, most of queen rearing methods described have been very practical to date.

"The book is small, as it is thought wise to make the descriptions brief and to the point, rather than to elaborate them fully. Beekeepers are usually busy men, and want facts presented as simply and directly as possible in a book of this kind", said the author.
