Black and white photographs illustrate queen rearing and queen maintenance of keeping healthy long lasting queens for your colony. Although not thoroughly biologically nor scientifically all the honey bee queen dynamics, this is a great beginning book and middle of the road read of queen rearing. The author illustrates queen cells, feeding, clipping, making, producing and use of queen honey bees! The author even talks about good record keeping on queen rearing which is a must for knowing about your results, mistakes and future endeavors. I would recommend this book for those interested in queen rearing.
