Jürgen  Tautz, Diedrich  Steen - The Honey Factory


Life in a hive – at last vividly explained

Why aren't the boy bees allowed to stay in their colony just as it is getting cosy? And what about the sexual excesses of a young queen bee?

This book has the answers. It tells of life in a colony of bees and invites us to go on a tour of the factory they run. This is a world inhabited by headstrong individuals, with clever methods and an amazing set of rules. It might look as if life in the hive is nothing but seething anarchy. But the bees know exactly what they are doing, and it is with stunning skill, fascinating expertise and impressive team work that they carry out their plans.

This book combines the most fascinating discoveries and greatest secrets in bee research and shows readers why humans and bees cannot survive without each other.

"An enrichting read for anyone who is moved by the secret beauty of our world and who cares about the future of our ecosystem."

Peter Wohlleben
