I looked on Amazon, but didnt find any reviews on the Queen rearing books. Can anyone recommend any for a newbee. I want to have a go at grafting.

Charles and Pauline Doublons book is very good 'Practical Queen Rearing'. And Ron Brown's Managing mininucs.

The Doublon book is for sale somewhere, but I cannot remember where, and cannot find it. It is a UK supplier, maybe beebooks new and old???

Also on this site http://www.honeyshop.co.uk/bbno.html but that may be out of date.

If Northern bee books are out of stock, drop Jeremy a line- the website is not always upto date!!

Thanks. This is by far and away the best forum I have ever used.

I have to be honest and say I found Vince Cooks one not much use at all. It may suit southern bees but AMM up north told me in no uncertain terms it won't work with us chum... and it didn't.
