In the book, “Be Aware, Be Involved,” by Beekeeper’s Al Crowley, you’ll discover the secrets that professional beekeepers use to keep the honey bees under control. There are over two hundred pages of great content including the history of beekeeping, what goes into keeping the bees healthy and safe, and even how to find and get information on the types of bees that are best for beekeeping. You’ll also discover the types of equipment beekeepers use to effectively manage the bees in their beehives, the types of feeders and hives that are most successful, and even the types of bees that a beekeeper should avoid. All this is taught in such a way that you can understand it without being overwhelmed and stop half way through because you just don’t understand all there is to know about bees.
It seems that Al has taken great care in teaching you just about everything beekeeping has to offer. You will quickly learn the various terms related to beekeeping and how each word relates to making your life easier. You’ll also be introduced to different kinds of bee hives and how to set them up. However, the biggest tip he gives in the book is one you might already know.
The main reason beekeeping is so difficult at some points is that the bees are out of control. You can’t just keep replacing the bees when they go bad because that just won’t work. You have to make sure that you’re taking control from the start. That means when you buy bees, you make sure they’re fully grown and have had some time out in the wild when they are not infected with the disease. You want to make sure your bees are healthy before you actually get them into the beehives.
Once you have your colonies of bees in place and your hives have been built, it’s time to move your colonies out to the pasture or even the woods to raise bees. One of the most important tips in the book is to move your bees out as soon as the weather starts to get warmer. That way, your bees will be able to adjust to the warm temperatures and won’t be so stressed out by it. That stress can easily lead to them being killed off by the cold.
Another tip in Bee Control Crowley includes taking good care of your bees. This means using some good food for them, like nectar rich food. They need this to survive and will produce more honey if fed this kind of food. Good food is better than nothing but it also has to be free of preservatives so you’ll have to check the label carefully. If you don’t check the label, you may end up with more bees dying than producing good honey.
While it’s hard to do without bees, there are a lot of tips in Bee Control Crowley that you’ll find very useful. It’s a valuable book and will serve as a great foundation to get you started in beekeeping. And while you’ll still need some knowledge to properly care for bees, you can get an idea from this book on how to properly take care of your bees. You’ll also find lots of ideas on how to start beekeeping. It can be a fun hobby that you’ll want to stick with.
