Is it a good read DAF?
It is quite easy to read and looks at beekeeping from the view point of making it as sustainable for the bees and well as for us and the environment. This is the reason that he has chosen the Warre hive to keep bees in as it avoid the constant hive inspections needed by conventional beekeeping. Quite an interesting viewpoint and there are some good points to be learnt from it but I think that there may be other reasons for events such as colony collapse. But certainly an approach that we could all learn from. So worth buying and reading even if you do not agree with it all.
