The American Bee Journal, March 16, 1881

The American Bee Journal. Vol XVII, No. 11, March 16, 1881

The American Bee Journal is the “oldest bee paper in America established in 1861 devoted to scientific bee-culture and the production and sale of pure honey. Published every Wednesday, by Thomas G. Newman, Editor and Proprietor.” In this issue is topics from Colchian Honey and Honey-Producing in California to Early Importations of Italian Bees and Tardiness in Fecundity. – Summary by Larry Wilson for LibriVox

As a former beekeeper, I embraced the opportunity to read for you:

  • Track #01 Pure Liquid Honey in Glass, by Charles Dadant: this and Track #10 are protests by beekeepers that stores were selling sugar water syrup labeled as “honey”
  • Track #08 Remarkable Tardiness in Fecundity, by G. W. Demaree: perplexing observations following bee colony assessment
  • Track #10 Bee-Men to the Front, by A. W. Fisk
