Plan Bee Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Hardest-Working Creatures on the Planet


Plan Bee Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Hardest-Working Creatures on the Planet by Susan Brackney

With this personal and informative primer, Susan Brackney opens the beehive to reveal the inner life of these unsung heroes of the food chain. At a time when their continued existence is threatened, Brackney's guide is an enthusiastic exploration that will set your mind buzzing. Overtaxed and under-recognised, the humble bee finally gets her due in this engaging, fascinating and expertly-written guided tour of the world of bees. Apiarist and nature writer Susan Brackney is passionate about bees - how they live, work and think, as well as what they can teach us. Discover why honeybees are disappearing and what we can do about it; the beekeeper's trade and its fantastic benefits (honey, pollen, wax, royal jelly and mead); and gardening tips to attract and support honeybees. Plan Bee will appeal to anyone who's ever been curious about the mysterious and always-buzzing world of bees.
