See how a honeybee colony can be safely moved from an unwanted or dangerous location to one that is better for the bees and making honey. Readers follow the story of one colony being moved from a ramshackle old barn into new hive boxes, also on the farm. Told via plenty of close-up, color photographs and explanatory text, Burns explains the moving process in addition to how bee colonies form, what bees are good for, and the reasons for saving a bee colony. A useful title for classes studying bees or examples of animal homes.
