BEES' WAYS

A noted beeman virtually takes one-in imagination- inside a hive and allows one to follow the life processes of the queen bee, the swarming, the gathering pollen and nectar, the ""home life"" of the bees, caring for the young, building the comb, etc. The drones, the workers, the way heat is maintained in winter, the enemies and diseases, the teamwork -- and what man has done to help, and to hinder. Fascinating nature study.
