Honeybee Bee Insect Membrane-winged insect Invertebrate
Beekeeping Naturally: A Simple Recipe, by Michael Bush
Details: Paperback 6 x 9 in. B&W 214 pages 75 illustrations.

This book is a simple recipe for beekeeping naturally. Rather than offer all possible choices I am offering a recipe based on what I would (and have) chosen to use. There are few combinations of equipment I have not used and this is what I arrived at after more than four decades of beekeeping. This is a simple list of things to buy, things to do that worked for me. Also available in EBook.
