Besides getting a reprint of Doolittle's book/s are there any more current books that offer advice on the management of out-apiaries?
Well, it is different. At my home apiary, I have a barn with lots of equipment handy...literally just a few feet from my hives. If during a hive inspection I discover I need an additional super or something else, all I have to do is walk over to the barn and grab it. With an out-yard, you must plan ahead, you may need to make notes on things you need to bring next trip etc. For example, you may need to bring along some sugar syrup, or an extra super or two, etc. How are you going to carry your beekeeping tools and hot lit smoker in your car from the remote site? You see there are things that are different when you have an outyard.Why would you think it's any different than managing a home apiary?
Absolutely! Couldn't function without referring to this one frequently. Here's mine: Chilton for '96 chevy 3/4 ton longbed....are there any more current books that offer advice on the management of out-apiaries?
