Beekeeping Books and Resources

I have found several tools and books that I have useful in beekeeping. I’ll attempt to list the ever growing list here.

Hive Management: A Seasonal Guide for Beekeepers A short book which provides useful tips about what you should be doing during each season. It was part of a intermediate beekeeping school
The Beekeeper’s Handbook, Third Edition The “go to” book for beginner beekeepers. This book part of my first beekeeping class.
Langstroth’s Hive and the Honey-Bee This is a reprint from Langstroth’s original book. While some part of beekeeping has changed in the last 150 years like pest management a lot has not. Wonderful wood carving photos and stories about past beekeeping make this a worthy read.
Honey Bee Biology and Beekeeping A complete textbook from a intermediate beekeeping class. Lots of technical information and advice.

If you find this website useful consider purchasing the books from Amazon to help support Blue Line Apiary.
