Books, Books, and more Books!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Zander and I wanted to take a minute and thank several folks for the great book references.  Specifically, thanks to Dennis for sharing several of his books on beekeeping with Zander.  Dennis is a professional Entomologist is one of the main reasons Zander became interested in insects.  

Zander kept busy over this past weekend reading "The Hive and the Honey Bee".  This is an excellent resource and has everything you want to know about beekeeping in it and more.

The next three books Zander just borrowed from Dennis and will likely read these cover to cover in the next 2-3 weeks.
Beekeeping in the United States

The Social Behavior of the Bees: A Comparative Study

The Life of the Bee
Also, thanks to Valerie from St. Jude Medical for the multiple informative links and articles on beekeeping.  Zander went through all 18 of the YouTube "Backyard Beekeeping" series videos last week and read all the articles.  See the bottom of the blog for links to the YouTube video series and the links.

Also, thanks to Zander's mom Nancy for supporting his "Bee" habit and purchasing/obtaining the following books for him:
Green Guides Keeping Bees

Beekeeping for Dummies
The Beekeeper's Bible
