Bee Sex Essentials

Learn how drone and queen production can impact your honey bee hives.


Dr. Larry Connor, distinguished writer for Bee Culture and American Bee Journal, chronicles the latest and essential knowledge of drone and queen production, mating, and genetics in Bee Sex Essentials.

This 152-page reference book clearly and concisely shows how the sex life of bees directly impacts the fate of the colony. Dr. Connor also outlines a sample bee breeding program for beekeepers with less than 100 colonies who want to produce from survivor, locally-adapted, hygienic, and mite-resistant strains of bees.
