Whether your goal is to rear a few queen bees or thousands, this manual provides the basic knowledge and instruction to get you started and can be applied to beekeeping operations ranging from several thousand colonies to one or two. A successful queen bee producer is well organised, committed, and pays attention to hygiene, pest and disease status and environmental conditions at all apiaries: be they mating or queen breeding apiaries or those holding production and support colonies. With practice, you can refine your queen rearing methods to suit your operation and resources. This manual can always be your point of reference. Rearing queen bees is a specialist job. It takes a significant level of experience and resources to produce good quality mated queens. In addition, rearing your own queen bees can be a lot of fun and can add an extra interest to your beekeeping. Queens of superior quality result from a combination of: · good drone rearing and stocking practices · good queen rearing practices · a program of continual stock selection. Each of these three elements is addressed in-depth throughout this manual. This publication was written by technical specialists of the NSW Department of Primary Industries and produced by Education Delivery, Tocal College. It supports the following competencies from AHC10, The National Agriculture, Horticulture, Conservation and Land Management Training Package: · AHCBEK402A Perform queen bee artificial insemination · AHCBEK407A Rear queen bees

»Ein wunderbares Buch über den besten Freund des Menschen unter den Insekten...« Edward O. Wilson Die Bienenkönigin ist keine absolute Herrscherin. Im Gegenteil: Bienen entscheiden alle gemeinsam als Schwarm, sie erforschen kollektiv einen Sachverhalt und debattieren lebhaft, um letztlich einen Konsens zu finden. Der bekannte Verhaltensforscher Thomas D. Seeley untersucht seit Jahrzehnten in akribischer Kleinarbeit das Leben der Bienen. In seinem spannend geschriebenen Buch zeigt er anschaulich, was wir von diesen wunderbaren Insekten lernen können und dass die Entscheidung mehrerer klüger als die Einzelner sein kann. Ein reich bebildertes, ebenso faszinierendes wie anregendes Buch. »Seeleys Enthusiasmus und Bewunderung für Bienen sind ansteckend, seine Forschungen meisterhaft.« New York Times »Brillant.« Nature »Fesselnd und bezaubernd.« Science »Das hinreißendste Wissenschaftsbuch des Jahres.« Financial Times

Wenn wir Bienen und Hummeln retten wollen, müssen wir uns auf die Suche nach ihren seltensten Arten begeben. Um zu verstehen, warum sie verschwinden, aber auch, um diese faszinierenden Geschöpfe in Erinnerung zu behalten. Der Biologe Dave Goulson hat sich an ihre pollenbestäubten Fersen geheftet. Egal, ob er den Kampf der Goldenen Patagonischen Hummel gegen invasive Arten beschreibt oder auf den Äußeren Hebriden die letzten Deichhummeln Großbritanniens aufspürt: Immer ist seine Leidenschaft für die Wildbestäuber ansteckend. Und seine Tipps, wie wir in unserer unmittelbaren Umwelt Bienen vor dem Sterben bewahren, machen unbändige Lust darauf, den heimischen Balkon mit Beinwell zu bepflanzen.
