Would Y'all go with Bee Sex essentials or Contemporary Queen rearing if you had to pick one? I am not looking for another book on queen rearing i.e grafting starting etc., more on the breeding side of it. Any suggestions?

Also, is the book The Mites of the Honeybee have practical info in it or is it more like a lab manual. In other words, is it any good?

Mites of the Honeybee by Webster and Delaplane. In some ways similar to Honey Bee Pests, Predators and Diseases, but only about Mites, of course. Not something that you just read, perhaps. But a good resource, w/ illustrations and charts and study sightings.

Yeah, it's good.
