Praise For The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beekeeping

"When we learn to live by creating a better world rather than using up the one we have, keeping bees without treatments will be easy. Until that time, methods like those that Dean and Laurie describe are necessary, and worth every bit of struggle. It's the best way."
-Kirk Webster, Vermont Beekeeper
