Today's beekeepers face unprecedented challenges, a fact that is now front-page news with the spread of "colony collapse disorder." Newly introduced pests like varroa and tracheal mites have made chemical treatment of hives standard practice, but pest resistance is building, which in turn creates demand for new and even more toxic chemicals. In fact, there is evidence that chemical treatments are making matters worse. It's time for a new approach. Now revised and updated with new resources and including full-color photos throughout, Natural Beekeeping offers all the latest information in a book that has already proven invaluable for organic beekeepers. The new edition offers the same holistic, sensible alternative to conventional chemical practices with a program of natural hive management, but offers new sections on a wide range of subjects, including: The basics of bee biology and anatomy Urban beekeeping Identifying and working with queens Parasitic mite control Hive diseases Also, a completely new chapter on marketing provides valuable advice for anyone who intends to sell a wide range of hive products.Ross Conrad brings together the best "do no harm" strategies for keeping honeybees healthy and productive with nontoxic methods of controlling mites; eliminating American foulbrood disease without the use of antibiotics; selective breeding for naturally resistant bees; and many other detailed management techniques, which are covered in a thoughtful, matter-of-fact way. Whether you are a novice looking to get started with bees, an experienced apiculturist looking for ideas to develop an integrated pest-management approach, or someone who wants to sell honey at a premium price, this is the book you've been waiting for.

The urban homesteading movement is spreading rapidly across the nation. Urban Homesteading is the perfect "back-to-the-land" guide for urbanites who want to reduce their impact on the environment. Full of practical information, as well as inspiring stories from people already living the urban homesteading life, this colorful guide is an approachable guide to learning to live more ecologically in the city. The book embraces the core concepts of localization (providing our basic needs close to where we live), self-reliance (re-learning that food comes from the ground, not the grocery store; learning to do things ourselves), and sustainability (giving back at least as much as we take). Readers will find concise how-to information that they can immediately set into practice, from making solar cookers to growing tomatoes in a barrel to raising chickens in small spaces to maintaining mental serenity in the fast-paced city environment. Full of beautiful full-color photographs and illustrations, and plenty of step-by-step instructions, this is a must-have handbook for city folk with a passion for the simple life.

Initiation and Practice in Modern Holistic Beekeeping

Dr. Negru is the author of this valuable work, based upon his own personal experience acquired during more than twelve years of research in the field of organic and natural preservation of bee colonies. During this entire original writing, he captures in an enjoyable way the new integral approach, the "HOLISTIC" approach, of the complex and age-old practice of beekeeping. Starting from the performance of the biological dynamics of bee colonies in nature, the author, preserving the standard dimension of a Langstroth-type frame as a main basic element of conventional beekeeping techniques introduces for the very first time the idea of the "Maximus System" and the Maximus technique, which relies on matrix reporting natural principles, thus integrating the matrix into the working system. The Maximus System is different from other classical systems of beekeeping; through the use of specific methods, it is oriented towards the real, actual needs of the bee colonies, in direct connection with both the material and the universal laws governing matter and substance. It is characterized as a "HOLISTIC System" and introduces for the first time the "MATRIX Concept." This is an "intangible abstract element, belonging to subtle plans," as defined by the author, representing the very basis of the life of a bee colony. With a view to assessing what happens at a certain point in the bee colony, the author introduces the "eloquent honeycomb method," which consists of introducing an empty frame into the hive without an artificial comb attached to it, where, by liaising to the matrix, the bees will build up in a few days (or not) a natural comb from bottom up, with differentiated cells in which the queen bee will lay eggs (or not). Depending on these events, we will be able to "read" the actual status of the colony in question. Using this method, the author emphasizes for the first time a new type of cells built by bees, which he calls conversion cells. He provides designs for new preservation and maintenance methods and techniques throughout the year, queen bees' natural selection and breeding methods, and disease prevention and prophylaxis methods, thus explaining in complete detail the complex activities that beekeepers need to perform in an apiary. In this book there are for certain at least five patents related to procedures, methods, and devices of utmost international scientific importance in the original scientific content of this specialized work. For all these scientific innovations, as well as for the new HOLISTIC complex and complete approach in the field of beekeeping, upon the proposition of the Scientific Researcher of 2nd level George Florea TOBA, Ph.D., the author is granted the title of Honorary Scientific Researcher within the Professor David Davidescu Biodiversity Research and Studies Center.

A modern approach to homesteading—no farm required Food recalls, dubious health claims, scary and shocking ingredients in health and beauty products. Our increasingly industrialized supply system is becoming more difficult to navigate, more frightening, and more frustrating, leaving us feeling stuck choosing in many cases between the lesser of several evils. Author Deborah Niemann offers healthier, more empowering choices, by showing us how to reclaim links in our food and purchasing chains, to make choices that are healthier for our families, ourselves, and our planet. In this fully updated and revised edition of Homegrown and Handmade, Deborah shows how making things from scratch and growing some of your own food can help you eliminate artificial ingredients from your diet, reduce your carbon footprint, and create a more authentic life. Whether your goal is increasing your self-reliance or becoming a full-fledged homesteader, it’s packed with answers and solutions to help you rediscover traditional skills, take control of your food from seed to plate, and much more. This comprehensive guide to food and fiber from scratch proves that attitude and knowledge is more important than acreage. Written from the perspective of a successful, self-taught modern homesteader, this well-illustrated, practical, and accessible manual will appeal to anyone who dreams of a more empowered life. Deborah Niemann presents and teaches extensively on topics ranging from soapmaking to livestock care. She and her family raise livestock for meat, eggs and dairy products, while an organic garden and orchard provide fruit and vegetables. Deborah is also the author of Raising Goats Naturally.
