The Practical Queen Breeder: Beekeeping Naturally, by Michael Bush

Details: $20 Paperback 6 x 9 in. B&W 210 pages 114 illustrations.

This is my current method of queen breeding and rearing after many years of trying various techniques. It is the one I find most reliable in getting cells started, finished and mated. The reason I do this method is that it has the most success in my experience under adverse conditions as well as good conditions.

I always look forward to queen rearing literature! I always hope that I will find a solution to my queen mating in my local area being less than 20% successful (I am at 0% this year :/). Looking forward to the book!

Does this method scale down enough for the backyard beekeeper?
Some of the book is describing how to raise just a few queens. Most of it is more focused on raising a lot of queens, but also the principles of how to get well fed, well mated queens apply on any scale.
