One of the few people of his time who actually made a living from bees, C. C. Miller made beekeeping his sole business, beginning as a hobby in 1861 and continuing until his death in 1920, following a long and distinguished career that produced many articles and books on the subject. This volume, long a classic within the beekeeping community, is a practical, yet endlessly charming handbook on all aspects of a romantic and arcane pursuit. Offering advice, observations, and information gleaned from more than a half-century of beekeeping, it covers, among many other topics, the importance of keeping hives clean and well-ventilated, mending combs, maintaining proper hive temperatures, winter storage, the Queen's nursery, harvesting honey, plus a special section of recipes that range from honey cake to salves for frostbite. Written by a major figure in apiculture history, this volume remains a standard text on hive management and the practices and principles of efficient, effective beekeeping.
