Beautiful Queens and Honey Too!

Brierley Field’s   UK    26 pages   Softback

F.W.L Sladen first wrote about his Queen rearing success in 1904. He overcame the practice of taking an otherwise strong queen-right colony out of honey production for cell raising by inserting a vertical queen excluder in it, and isolating 4 frames of the brood nest to create a Queen-less cell raising compartment.

This booklet describes how the principles employed by Sladen as used by Brierley Field’s with modern techniques and equipment can be used by beekeepers who keep bees whether as a hobby, or on a larger scale, for the production of quality Queens.
