Science and bee management

In the 18th century, a wing of bee keeping literature emerged which concentrated more on the practical application of bee knowledge. The Management texts concentrated mostly on the profitable side of apiculture. Some apiarists set out to discover the most efficient means of harvesting wax and honey. Experiment and observation helped apiarists develop sophisticated systems for operating their hives. Bee literature continued to explore natural history but more attention was given to successful manipulation of the prodigious insects.
