What do you know about the honey bee apart from the fact that it can sting and it 'makes' honey? Throughout the centuries philosophers and naturalists have unfolded many strange and amazing facts about the bee colony and you may be surprised to learn that such a small creature has evinced so great an interest that more has been written about the bee than any other living creature apart from man himself.

It is hoped that this handbook will teach you a little about this fascinating craft.
