First Lessons in Beekeeping provides the new beekeeper with informative text and liberal color photos that demonstrate the techniques described. This edition features a touch of beekeeping history along with the modern practices needed for success with honey bees. Although designed to guide the beekeeper in the first steps to becoming a beekeeper, this book is one that all beekeepers can enjoy and, in addition, benefit from its current information.


            In the preface to this book, author Keith Delaplane says of his first book in beekeeping, “It’s pages opened to me a golden world of honey bees and beekeeping and guided my stumbling steps that first spring season. My story is but one of thousands who have passed through the door opened by Dadant’s little book…”

            That “little book” was the 1968 edition of Charles P. Dadant’s 1917 classic First Lessons in Beekeeping. Dadant’s book and its succeeding editions have been America’s first stop for beginning beekeepers for over 90 years. For the latest edition, Delaplane honors the tradition of sticking to the basics, while fully engaging the new realities of beekeeping in the 21st century. Here in this book is everything you need to know to become a successful beginning beekeeper.
