An Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Keeping Bees in Your Yard and Garden

This revised and expanded edition of The Backyard Beekeeper gives you even more information on “greening” your beekeeping with sustainable practices, pesticide-resistant bees, and urban and suburban beekeeping.

The Backyard Beekeeper makes the time honored and complex tradition of beekeeping an enjoyable and accessible backyard pastime that will appeal to gardeners, crafters, and cooks everywhere. More than a guide to beekeeping, it is a handbook for harvesting the products of a beehive, a honey cookbook, and more- all in one lively, beautiful illustrated reference.


New material includes:

  • “Greening” your beekeeping
  • All about urban bees
  • Keeping your bees healthy naturally



  • What you need to get started: New boxes are smaller, lighter, easier, and better than ever, and the few pounds of honey the produce makes a plentiful harvest for a family with some to share.
  • A how-to guide to the art of beekeeping and how to set up, care for, and harvest honey from your own colonies; as well as tons of bee-related facts and projects
  • The best place to locate your new bee colonies for their safety and yours, and how to landscape to screen them from neighbors
  • Organic and nontoxic ways to care for your bees, from providing fresh water and protection from the elements to keeping them healthy, happy, and productive
  • An exploration of the different types of honey and their health benefits, along with recipes of delicious treats, and instructions on how to use honey and beeswax to make candles and beauty treatments.
  • Understanding what the beekeeping community has learned from the devastation of Colony Collapse Disorder
