This is the original book by John Lockard, which has been edited to bring it in line with modern standards to provide an enjoyable and engaging account as set out by John Lockard. Complete with illustrations to bring the ideas on the page to life in full colour. This book is intended for both the beginners and the seasoned pros, and for those who are just curious to find out about this interesting and rather unusual pastime. No specific background knowledge is required as John explains all in this complete guide. Complete with interesting facts about bees and honey, this is just the tip of the ice berg on a subject of fascination throughout time, who would have thought bees and the art of beekeeping could be so interesting. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I had fun putting it together. I was born in a little valley, hemmed in by mountains running north and south on either side. It varies in width from one to three miles from the foot of one range to the other. From my home I have a clear view of these beautiful Mountains and, as these mountains and lowlands teemed with game of all kind, and being heavily timbered, made an ideal location for the home of the wild bee. From early youth I loved to lure the wild turkey, stalk the deer and line the bee to his home. Is it any wonder that after forty years of undiminished passion for sports of this kind that I can truthfully say there is scarcely a square rod of these mountains that is not indelibly impressed on my mind in connection with some of the above mentioned sports or pastimes? I will confine myself in this work to the subject of Bee Hunting, believing it to be one of the most fascinating and beneficial of pastimes. Honey hunting or Honey harvesting is the gathering of honey from wild bee colonies and is one of the most ancient human activities and is still practiced by aboriginal societies in parts of Africa, Asia, Australia and South America. Some of the earliest evidence of gathering honey from wild colonies is from rock painting, dating to around 8,000 BC. Gathering honey from wild bee colonies is usually done by subduing the bees with smoke and breaking open the tree or rocks where the colony is located, often resulting in the physical destruction of the colony. A great book on bee hunting which deals with bee keeping from a very basic level without complicated beekeeping equipment and the minimum of beekeeping supplies. One of the best beekeeping courses found online, great guide for bee keepers of all levels, an ultimate beekeeping starter kit for the novice and the pro. Welcome to the bees nest, a beekeeping for beginners manuals will have you flying through the beehives as you will quickly learn how to build a beehive and eventually in a position to offer honey bees for sale if you so choose. Full of interesting bee facts. Website: Available on Amazon British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) twitter - @RiseofDouai

»Ein wunderbares Buch über den besten Freund des Menschen unter den Insekten...« Edward O. Wilson Die Bienenkönigin ist keine absolute Herrscherin. Im Gegenteil: Bienen entscheiden alle gemeinsam als Schwarm, sie erforschen kollektiv einen Sachverhalt und debattieren lebhaft, um letztlich einen Konsens zu finden. Der bekannte Verhaltensforscher Thomas D. Seeley untersucht seit Jahrzehnten in akribischer Kleinarbeit das Leben der Bienen. In seinem spannend geschriebenen Buch zeigt er anschaulich, was wir von diesen wunderbaren Insekten lernen können und dass die Entscheidung mehrerer klüger als die Einzelner sein kann. Ein reich bebildertes, ebenso faszinierendes wie anregendes Buch. »Seeleys Enthusiasmus und Bewunderung für Bienen sind ansteckend, seine Forschungen meisterhaft.« New York Times »Brillant.« Nature »Fesselnd und bezaubernd.« Science »Das hinreißendste Wissenschaftsbuch des Jahres.« Financial Times

Die Hummel ist nicht nur ein pelziges Geschöpf, an dessen Anblick wir uns erfreuen, sie ist auch ein Wunder der Natur, das die Gesetze der Schwerkraft überlistet, und ein Nutztier, das jährlich Abermillionen Tomaten und Johannisbeeren bestäubt. Doch die Hummel ist vom Aussterben bedroht. Ihr Verschwinden hätte gravierende Folgen für unsere Gesellschaft. Dave Goulson, Englands führender Hummelforscher, öffnet uns die Augen für ungeahnte Zusammenhänge zwischen Hummeln und Menschen. Sein Buch ist eine Liebeserklärung an die wahre Königin der Lüfte, eine hinreißend humorvolle Schilderung eines großen Abenteuers, der Rettung der Erdbauhummel – und ein furioses Plädoyer für die Bewahrung der Natur.

Der britische Biologe Dave Goulson unternimmt eine Expedition auf den Planeten der Insekten – genauer auf die Blumenwiesen rund um sein marodes französisches Landhaus. Die Helden seiner Feldforschungsabenteuer sind nicht nur Bienen und Hummeln, sondern alles, was kreucht und fleucht: Grillen, Grashüpfer, Glühwürmchen – und Libellen, denen beim Liebemachen zuzusehen eine Freude ist. Goulson taucht dabei so tief ins Reich der Tiere ein wie kaum jemand zuvor. Ein Buch, das die entscheidende Bedeutung von Insekten für unsere Umwelt und das ganze globale Ökosystem beleuchtet. Und ein Weckruf, die Nutzung von Insektiziden zurückzufahren, um das Sterben der Bienen und anderer Bestäuber zu stoppen.
