The Backyard Beekeeper is Quarry's comprehensive, hands-on guide to beekeeping for hobbyists, first published in 2005 and revised in 2009. It features how-to advice on setting up colonies, caring for the bees, and harvesting honey. The reader learns how to choose the right location for their bees, from fresh water availability to protection from the elements, and how to include organic/nontoxic options. New to this edition are an expanded section on urban beekeeping, a guide to using top bar hives, and an overview of the latest techniques in the ongoing battle against invasive mites.
