Synopsis

This long-anticipated book from a pioneer in the field of beekeeping addresses the current plight of the honeybee and that noble creatures reaction to the past hundred years of hive mechanization and human manipulation. Hauk, a biodynamic gardener and beekeeper for more than twenty-five years, approaches the bee as a sick patient who has been trying for years to signal to us the deep crises of its diminishing life forces and its increasing inability to resonate with the environment. Hauk presents the bee colony as a complex and delicate organism, with a life and vital functions far beyond the production of honey. Construction of the hive, colony hierarchy, swarming, as well as foul brood, mites, and disease are all discussed in the context of the hive as a whole.
