    Keeping bees is becoming increasingly popular around the world as concern grows that bees and their environments are threatened by global warming and climate change. For beginners, this guide follows three beekeepers using different hives through their first season. Featuring three different popular beehive designs: Top Bar, Warre and Flow, Janet Luke interviews the keepers and carries out inspections of their hives, looking at where to locate beehives, how to introduce the bees, comb management, varroa control, disease inspections, feeding bees, requeening, harvesting honey and preparing hives for the winter months.
