A reprint of G.M. Doolittle’s first classic book on queen rearing from 1889. After over twenty years studying bees and queens, testing hypothesis and writing down outcomes, he published his first book. New queen rearing practices have their basis in his research and many techniques he developed we are still using today such as how to transfer larva from worker cells to specially designed cups for rearing. His book teaches beekeepers how they influence the quality of queens and therefore the quality of their hives. Reprinted to enhance images and added Table of Contents.
