2009 Reprint of original 1934 edition. Paperback, 171pp. The Dadant family, originally from France, is one the first families of beekeeping in America. Charles Dadant (1817-1902) is considered one of the founding fathers of modern beekeeping. He was always seeking a better way to keep bees. Just as he had begun with the old European "eke," he quickly abandoned that kind of beekeeping for the modern Langstroth hive concept. Bee hives have often been designed and built without regard for the needs and habits of the honey bee colony. Probably the best design for a colony was the large hive developed by Charles Dadant. It provided a large, deep brood chamber with plenty of room in which the queen could lay, and shallower supers for honey storage. However, the price and promotion of smaller hives offered for sale during the period from about 1885 to 1900 made them more popular. Charles son, Camille Pierre Dadant, authored First Lessons in Beekeeping, a standard and still important work on this subject. Dadant's book and its succeeding editions have been America's first stop for beginning beekeepers for over 90 years. Lavishing illustrated with photographs.

So you started keeping honey bees last year. Your first year, no doubt, was overwhelming. You meticulously prepared them for winter and much to your surprise, they survived! Now what? On the other hand, if your first year ended in a total loss over the winter, what now? What lessons does a winter dead-out provide? What are the strategies to get a fresh start? How do you prevent repeating the same lessons over a second time?Second-year bee hives that survive the winter are an entirely different animal than the nuc or package you installed a year ago. These hives are ready go, which means a potential honey harvest awaits you. But before you order up your plastic squeeze bears and dream of winning a blue ribbon at the county fair, you will need to think about managing the swarming impulse. All colonies of honey bees carry a genetic instinct to swarm. If your honey bees swarm, you lose the margin of foragers responsible for your harvestable honey.Now the question becomes of whether or not you address the swarming inclination, and whether or not you want to harvest honey. Spoiler Alert: If you have close neighbors, it's a good idea to develop a strategy for swarm management. Secondarily, how will you prepare for a potential honey harvest? Where and how will you harvest your honey? Once harvested, then what? Where will you store it?Your second year also holds the promise of splitting hives, making nucs, and the possibilities of expanding. Maybe you'll need an additional location. How far do you want to take this dream of expanding your hobby?Second-year beekeeping holds a lot of promise. Each choice contains a variety of options. In this volume from the Back Yard Beekeeping series, Missouri beekeeper Grant Gillard explores potential scenarios and the possible options. Grant started keeping honey bees in 1981, back in the days when this hobby was far less complicated. Today, he manages around 200 colonies and sells his honey at local farmer's markets. Follow Grant's advice and suggestions to make the most of your hobby, with the special emphasis on choosing the option that works best for you.

Queen bee. Worker bees. Busy as a bee. These phrases have shaped perceptions of women for centuries, but how did these stereotypes begin? Who are the women who keep bees and what can we learn from them? Beeconomy examines the fascinating evolution of the relationship between women and bees around the world. From Africa to Australia to Asia, women have participated in the pragmatic aspects of honey hunting and in the more advanced skills associated with beekeeping as hive technology has advanced through the centuries. Synthesizing the various aspects of hive-related products, such as beewax and cosmetics, as well as the more specialized skills of queen production and knowledge-based economies of research and science, noted bee expert Tammy Horn documents how and why women should consider being beekeepers. The women profiled in the book suggest ways of managing careers, gender discrimination, motherhood, marriage, and single-parenting -- all while enjoying the community created by women who work with honey bees. Horn finds in beekeeping an opportunity for a new sustainable economy, one that takes into consideration environment, children, and family needs. Beeconomy not only explores globalization, food history, gender studies, and politics; it is a collective call to action.

Winner, 2014 Distinguished Scholarship Award presented by the Animals & Society section of the American Sociological Association Bees are essential for human survival—one-third of all food on American dining tables depends on the labor of bees. Beyond pollination, the very idea of the bee is ubiquitous in our culture: we can feel buzzed; we can create buzz; we have worker bees, drones, and Queen bees; we establish collectives and even have communities that share a hive-mind. In Buzz, authors Lisa Jean Moore and Mary Kosut convincingly argue that the power of bees goes beyond the food cycle, bees are our mascots, our models, and, unlike any other insect, are both feared and revered. In this fascinating account, Moore and Kosut travel into the land of urban beekeeping in New York City, where raising bees has become all the rage. We follow them as they climb up on rooftops, attend beekeeping workshops and honey festivals, and even put on full-body beekeeping suits and open up the hives. In the process, we meet a passionate, dedicated, and eclectic group of urban beekeepers who tend to their brood with an emotional and ecological connection that many find restorative and empowering. Kosut and Moore also interview professional beekeepers and many others who tend to their bees for their all-important production of a food staple: honey. The artisanal food shops that are so popular in Brooklyn are a perfect place to sell not just honey, but all manner of goods: soaps, candles, beeswax, beauty products, and even bee pollen. Buzz also examines media representations of bees, such as children’s books, films, and consumer culture, bringing to light the reciprocal way in which the bee and our idea of the bee inform one another. Partly an ethnographic investigation and partly a meditation on the very nature of human/insect relations, Moore and Kosut argue that how we define, visualize, and interact with bees clearly reflects our changing social and ecological landscape, pointing to how we conceive of and create culture, and how, in essence, we create ourselves.
