    Default Queen rearing books

    I have ordered something from Amazon, and I need to bump the price up to $15 to get free shiping. So i thought I would buy a queen rearing book. I want to do backyard queen rearing, so Im not looking for anything to complex. I prefer also not to graft, but if it comes down to it, I will. So can anyone help me pick out the right book?

    Thanks Steve

    Michael Bush has some good queen rearing material on his side. I also believe Jay Smith's Better Queen is in public domain available free (PDF)

    Mike, I thought about the compendium book, but I will probably just get lost in that. Im looking for something simple, to get me started. Like I said I would like to try graftless, I dont want to get that involved yet.

    Thanks so far everyone, Steve

    Practical Queen Rearing is available on a Nook (Barnes and Noble e-reader) for no cost.

    Hey everybody!! He wants to BUY something else to get free shipping. Read his Post. He wasn't looking for a source of FREE info. Sometimes holding the hard copy in ones hands is nice.

    Queen rearing essentials is a good intro book. Personally I find Dr. Connor's writing style a little disjointed and hard to follow. But that's me.

    Any of Brother Adam's books are good, although he doesn't go into the particulars of queen rearing.
