Fourth, to put this book in context I have included a memoir of Huber by Professor De Candolle, a friend of Huber and a series of letters from Huber that were originally published in French and later in the American Bee Journal. This gives a bit of background on Huber's life and the letters give you a better feel for his personality.

These observations were made using a new type of hive in which each comb had glass sides, which Huber developed; these hives were the ancestors of our modern observation hives. Until then, hives had been circular and made of straw. com/books?id VTYU72nCkxcC.

This is a fabulous account of a natural scientist on the life of bees. What is most necessary is the clarity of description of their lives combined with a clear mind on how to account for different factors that explain phenomenon. Great care was taken to find out key issues such as what happens if a queen waits a long time until she leaves to mate, how long is too long before she can't be fertilized, what a fertilized queen looks like... So, I guess there is some explicit sexual content... of bee mating. Very helpful to understand how best to manage them.

Interesting observations and an eye opener to experimental methods used in the 1700s. Much early information on the use of " leaf" hives. The language usage is antiquated and was a bit difficult for me to understand. But that is my problem, and not the fault of the translator!

One must remember this was written in a previous era where exposition was the norm. Once past that, there is a great deal of focus on how a beehive thinks and responds to common stimuli.

repetitive, slow...but with the subject matter that was expected. It was a free book for kindle and it does have interesting educational info.

This book provides a detailed view of the reproductive activity within the hive. The precise experiments, conducted following a rigorous protocol, answers a lot of questions the hobbyist might have, but lack the resources or time required to determine.

We've come across numerous references to honey, bee pollen, and bee stings, that have led us too believe that what bees produce is better for us than modern chemical substitutes. Not to mention the critical service,they perform for the healthy growth of our plants. This book is a good reference for the bee-keeping we plan to do when we retire.
