The Bee Hunter

Originally published in 1949, this amusing and informative little book gives a charming account of an avocation seriously pursued by the author for fifty summers. It provides as well, with clarity and wit, a manual for lovers of nature (and wild honey) who might wish to undertake this ingenious sport. George Harold Edgell sticks his neck out on the first page and says no other book describing the proper approach to wild bees exists. “It is time,” he says, “for someone who has hunted bees and found bee trees to write the facts.”

The Bee Man

The state insect of North Carolina, honeybees have long been prized. Honey is mentioned in the earliest history books and in the Bible. In the past, many farmers have maintained several hives of bees which provided sweetening for cooking and baking, in addition to its customary use as a complement to many kinds of bread. Currently, beekeeping is experiencing somewhat of a revival with everything from equipment to classes for beginner and experienced beekeepers readily available. This is good news when one considers that 40% of the world's food supply depends on pollination provided by honeybees! In this story, Joe and Papa race along, following the honeybee that Papa has marked with flour on its back, until they reach the bee tree. In the early 1900's, bee coursing was done to help locate bee trees. The method involved sprinkling flour on the bee's back, noting its direction as it left, and then marking the amount of time required for the bee to arrive back at the water source. This practice gave an estimate of the distance to the bee tree. Knowing that honeybees fly in a straight line (beeline) to their destination once airborne, bee keepers could follow the direction taken by the honeybee to find the bee tree and gather the sticky, delicious honey.

The Bee Bible

We need bees. We rely on them not only to pollinate our planet but to sweeten our lives with the fruits of their labours – honey, beeswax, Royal Jelly. These tiny, hardworking insects have transformed our lives with their quiet diligence; fertilising much of our food, most of the wild plants we rely on, and giving us thousands of years of sugary pleasure, candlelight and beauty treatments. But bees are in danger. Across the planet, bee numbers are plummeting. Honey bees, fat, fluffy bumblebees and key species of solitary bees are disappearing from our gardens, fields and wild spaces. Over the past 50 years, the UK has lost more than half its solitary bee numbers and three species of bumblebee have gone extinct. In the rest of Europe, nearly one in ten species of wild bees are facing extinction, in the US about a quarter of all wild bees have disappeared in the past ten years alone. Thankfully, we can do something if we act now. In The Bee Bible, best-selling author Sally Coulthard shows us fifty positive ways we can all save bees; from planting flowers bees love to mowing less, buying the right honey to influencing public spaces and government policy. Whether you garden for bees, shop with bees in mind, campaign for bees, or just learn a bit of bee-whispering, little things can make a big difference. Just ask a bee.

The World History of Beekeeping and Honey Hunting

This is the first book to explore in detail the world history of humankind's use of bees from prehistoric times to the present day. Both rock art and recent field studies have shown how honey hunters obtained their harvest from bees' nests. Honey has always been the chief prize, but bee brood has been eaten as meat, and beeswax has been utilized in many technologies. Bees, honey, and wax have special symbolic significance in both early beliefs and later world religions. But perhaps bees' greatest benefit has been their pollination of crops.

A Girl Called Tommie

Raised in the backwoods country of the Ozarks, Tommie was no ordinary girl. Sporting red hair and freckles, she lived up to every inch of her tomboyish name. In A Girl Called Tommie, the author spends a year in the life of this remarkable girl as she learns valuable lessons in honesty, responsibility, and ultimately the truth about a God that loves her. You will laugh with Tommie as she meets her new best friend Lucinda, a naive city girl who knows nothing about the country, and when her pet bluejay Jake turns out to be a mommy. You will sympathize when Tommie comes down with the measles, and when she learns a painful lesson about breaking in new shoes. You will smile with her as she gains a new baby brother, Bill, and becomes valedictorian of her graduating class. Through it all, she continues to search for Biblical truth as her Seventh-day Adventist relatives send her literature, and at the end of the school year, she gets an opportunity to visit them. "Now I'll have my big chance to see what Adventists are really like... I can go to church with them. Now I know that God is really looking out for me." This book is the first in the series. Read A Nurse Called Tommie and A Wife Called Tommie to complete this inspiring story.

The Lives of Bees

How the lives of wild honey bees offer vital lessons for saving the world’s managed bee colonies Humans have kept honey bees in hives for millennia, yet only in recent decades have biologists begun to investigate how these industrious insects live in the wild. The Lives of Bees is Thomas Seeley’s captivating story of what scientists are learning about the behavior, social life, and survival strategies of honey bees living outside the beekeeper’s hive—and how wild honey bees may hold the key to reversing the alarming die-off of the planet’s managed honey bee populations. Seeley, a world authority on honey bees, sheds light on why wild honey bees are still thriving while those living in managed colonies are in crisis. Drawing on the latest science as well as insights from his own pioneering fieldwork, he describes in extraordinary detail how honey bees live in nature and shows how this differs significantly from their lives under the management of beekeepers. Seeley presents an entirely new approach to beekeeping—Darwinian Beekeeping—which enables honey bees to use the toolkit of survival skills their species has acquired over the past thirty million years, and to evolve solutions to the new challenges they face today. He shows beekeepers how to use the principles of natural selection to guide their practices, and he offers a new vision of how beekeeping can better align with the natural habits of honey bees. Engagingly written and deeply personal, The Lives of Bees reveals how we can become better custodians of honey bees and make use of their resources in ways that enrich their lives as well as our own.
