As described in the preface, the author noticed that many authors in apiology engaged in the fallacious separation of honeybee study and study of other insects. Bailey attempts to rectify this mistake in her book, discussing honeybees in tandem with other insect research. She cites scientific studies and contemporaneous work in the field to bolster her work.
