Product Description

Details

Bees make honey; we all know that. But what happens between the bee buzzing around our garden, and the sticky knife in the jar, is a mystery to most of us.


Based on careful observation and years of experience, Michael Weiler here reveals the secret life of bees. He looks at all aspects of a bee's life and work and vividly describes their remarkable world. Did you know that it takes approximately 12,000 bee-hours to make one jar of honey? (At £5.30 per hour, that would mean one jar should cost around £63,600.)


This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in the intricacies of nature and our world.
