"Rich in highly detailed images, this comprehensive step by step guide to the methodologies used in boxing and splitting native bee hives is a must have text for the novice and experience Australian native bee keeper alike."

"This book describes a detailed step by step guid to splitting hives and also transferring a nest of bees from a log hive to a hive box. Great clear pictures and explanations of what to box and what not to as well as information on what problems you may encounter such as pests, direct sun on the brood and spilt honey. This book is a great resource for anyone new to splitting or attempting to transfer from a log to a box."

"Thank you for this book. I lost a hive several years ago because the log rotted. I would now have the knowledge and confidence to save my current hive if it deteriorated."

"Valuable Information from some of Australia’s best native bee keepers for rescuing hives, transferring, splitting, and even a trouble shooter. Wonderful visuals too."

"This one I feel needs updating as e.g. on page I talks about how the rubber fastener was no longer used but as you continue into the book e.g. on page 9,15 and 16 all still talk or show about using the rubber band. I feel an update on the wording as well as the picture is needed as that what I like about the books there have great pictures to reference to the words. But again short and to the point with great picture’s for reference."

"In-depth guide to transferring bees. Whether rescuing hives from naturally found positions to splitting established boxed hives. This is a must read. Great photos to help you in the processes."
