Bees make honey; we all know that. But what happens between the bee buzzing around our backyard, and the sticky knife in the jar, is a mystery to most of us. How many bee-hours does it take to make just one jar of honey? What do the honeybees' waggling dances really mean? Why do bees swarm? What is a 'house bee'?
From exploring their life cycle and development, to revealing their societies and behavior, expert biodynamic beekeeper Michael Weiler answers these questions and many more. The photographs, various biological illustrations, line drawings and tables are all designed to enhance the learning process.
Combining poetic observations with scientific detail, The Secrets of Bees uncovers the incredible world of these remarkable insects.
Michael Weiler has been a beekeeper for twenty-five years. He looks after fifty colonies and runs courses and conferences on ecological beekeeping in Germany and the UK.
