This is a vintage treatise on bee-keeping for profit. Although old, much of the information contained within this essay is timeless and will be of considerable utility to modern readers with a practical interest in the subject. Contents include: "On Hiving, and the General Management of Bees", "On Hiving Bees", "On Supplying Swarms with a Young Queen", "A Little More on Transferring Bees", "On Providing Hives with Suitable Drawers", "On Wintering Bees", "Why Bees do not Fill the Drawers", and "A Little More on the Use of my Patent Hive". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on Bee-keeping.
