In its 2nd edition this publication, recommended for students of BBKA Module 3, provides a comprehensive guide to bee health and sickness, presenting the reader with an examination of all aspects of bee diseases in a way that has not previously been available in a single book.

It details beekeeping problems, pests, parasites and diseases in depth and offers practical guidance rooted in beekeeping experience about preventing, controlling or curing threats to bee colonies to encourage more sustainable beekeeping practice.

Environmental considerations, the effects of food, genetics, health and hygiene, and the interactions of bees with the weather combine to bring a new and holistic approach to the topic.

The book was written by the late Pam Gregory who took up beekeeping in 1975 after moving to a remote Welsh farm to pursue a self-sufficient lifestyle. A highly qualified lady, Pam achieved a BSc in Ecology and an MSc in Natural Resource Management. She was a Master Beekeeper and also attained the National Diploma in Beekeeping.

Her experience covered time as a seasonal bee inspector (SBI), culminating in Regional Bee Inspector (RBI) for Wales.

Having become interested in the use of bees for alleviating poverty in developing countries, Pam became Honorary Secretary of Bees Abroad, in 1999, teaching beekeeping, honey marketing and business management in both Africa and Asia.

Since her death her book has been updated for this second edition to include the latest information on bee health problems and new threats such as the Asian hornet.
