Beekeeping - once seen as an old-fashioned country pursuit - is increasingly attracting young metropolitan professionals, and new hives are springing up all over our cities.

Whether you're attracted to beekeeping because you want to produce your own honey, do your bit to combat the threats that honeybee colonies face today, or simply reconnect with nature, Bees in the City provides a comprehensive guide to the subject.

Written by the authors of the bestselling A World Without Bees, it:

- introduces you to the school teachers, inner-city youngsters, City professionals and budding entrepreneurs who are at the forefront of this exciting new movement

- suggests creative ways you can help bees in your own back garden without keeping a hive

- provides extensive, practical information for the novice urban beekeeper, including tips on getting started and a month-by-month job guide

Packed with invaluable advice on how to understand and support these extraordinary creatures, Bees in the City will inspire you to join this new urban revolution.

A World without Bees -
published by Guardian Books

Colony Collapse Disorder is a mysterious 'disease' that is killing honey bees. First reported in the USA it has now spread across the planet. We were so intrigued by this mysterious plague we spent four months investigating the phenomena. From Argentina to Australia, New Zealand to New England, China to California and most of Europe we gathered the latest information from the scientists, apiarists and government officials piecing together the facts and dismantling the rumours arriving at the most up-to-date account of this global problem afflicting the honey bee.
