Backyard beekeepers everywhere agree: a successful colony is a thing of beauty.

Thousands of beekeepers have started beekeeping thanks to Kim Flottum's first book, The Backyard Beekeeper, and they have added to their repertoire of skills with The Backyard Beekeeper's Honey Handbook. Now, Better Beekeeping answers the question, "What do I do now that I'm a beekeeper?" This book takes serious beekeepers past the beginning stages and learning curves and offers solutions and rewards for keeping bees a better way. Better queens, better winters, better food, and better bees await any beekeeper willing to take on the challenge of having the right number of bees, of the right age, in the right place, in the right condition, at the right time.

About the Author
After receiving a degree in production horticulture from the University of Wisconsin, Kim Flottum began a career in honey bee pollination research with the USDA and a life-long interest in the multifaceted hobby and business of beekeeping. He next used his acquired skills to raise apples and vegetables in Connecticut, before moving to Medina, Ohio, in 1986 to become editor of the 132-year-old magazine, Bee Culture.
