“Keeping Bees is one in a series of books from author Ashley English for the Homemade Living line. Each one (Home Dairy, Keeping Chickens, and Canning & Preserving) presents detailed, but accessible, information for the urban homesteader...These books are adorable and chock-full of info, too. This volume provides the bee basics, but then goes on to discuss things to consider before raising bees (your neighbors, allergies, pets and kids, legal ramifications, etc.), how to house them (and where), feeding options, equipment must-haves, where to purchase them and how to maintain a healthy hive, and, of course, their magical byproduct: honey (along with recipes to try!)...It also includes checklists, as well as suggestions for requeening, preventing a swarm, dividing the hive and more.” --Urban Farm
“English's warm, encouraging tone, along with plenty of detailed photos of every stage of the process, make this book a must-have for novice beekeepers...I highly recommend Keeping Bees with Ashley English: All You Need to Know to Tend Hives, Harvest Honey & More to anyone who is considering keeping bees. It gives you a good idea of what to expect, so you can decide if you want to take the next step toward beekeeping.” --About.com Organic Gardening
