New Beekeeping records a search for the most suitable way to keep bees in the garden under modern conditions. It draws ideas from many past bee-masters to form a new overall approach. New Beekeeping manages bees within the natural patterns of colony life. Manipulations are used to influence the rate at which the colony matures, but the bees are never treated mechanically. The Author believes any colony which does not attempt to swarm when in the right condition is biologically decadent. The management methods both build large colonies and control the swarming instinct. A detailed plan of operation sets out how to manage a colony in twelve visits over a year.

There are around 16,000 species of bee. Only seven of these are responsible for creating the world's sweetest treat—honey. Combining Ilona's gorgeous photography and E. Readicker-Henderson's engaging text, A Short History of the Honey Bee follows the journey from flower to hive to honey throughout history. A Short History of the Honey Bee starts with the story of the honey bee—why it is named Apis mellifera, how it has evolved from a solitary creature to one that travels in groups, why it stings, and how pollination really works. Readicker-Henderson then moves on to the honey, detailing its history from a wild food foraged for on cliffs to the many varieties available for purchase today. But it is the everyday importance of the bee that remains the central message. Forty percent of the world's food supply—including apples, tomatoes, and strawberries—is dependent on pollination by honeybees. Colony collapse, when the worker bees suddenly disappear and leave behind the queen and the hive, is an ecological and agricultural crisis. For this reason alone we need to be more aware of the significance of bees.
