Bees are a marvel of nature and vital to human existence. The Bee Book is a great introduction to bees and beekeeping and celebrates the wonder of bees in . The Asian Hornet (Vespa velutina) by Prof Stephen John Martin has just been published by ’s a fascinating and highly readable account of the arrival, life cycle and control methods of the latest scourge of honey bees in western Europe.
Another detailed but easy read, The Bee Book is a very well illustrated book, but this time with a heavy use of images and schematic diagrams. While this book has good coverage of beekeeping itself, a significant number of pages are given to topics like attracting bees in the first place and planting of appropriate flowers to extend the honey flow. Works great, but domesticated honey bees are a problem. The alfalfa flower is aggressive—the stamens slap the bee’s underside to give it a good dusting. Honey bees don’t like this and have learned to steal the nectar from a slit in the flower, thus not pollinating the alfalfa.
The lifespan of a honey bee depends on the type of bee it is. Drone bees (male bees hatched from unfertilized eggs) live for around eight weeks. Sterile worker bees tend to live for up to six weeks during summer and five months or more during winter. The fertile queen bee can live for several years. Asian Honey Bees succeeds admirably. It is both an authoritative monograph that will satisfy experts and a highly readable book that will engage students and biologists in general. It presents Asian honeybees in the broader context of social behaviour and evolution while giving a .

Apis cerana japonica is a subspecies of the eastern honey bee native to is commonly known as the Japanese honey bee (ニホンミツバチ, Nihon mitsubachi).This subspecies was determined, through an analysis of mitochondrial DNA, to have originally come from the Korean peninsula.
They have been observed moving into urban areas in the absence of natural predators. The Asian honey bee is native to South-East Asia.
It is smaller and has less hair than the European honey bee, and has pronounced black/brown and yellow stripes. The Asian honey bee is a possible carrier of bee diseases and pests, and feral infestations could also compete with other bees for.
