Bees and grubs are damaging the combs since beekeeping is done in precise lines and with heavy extraction. After preserving enough honey in the combs for the bees, bees are housed in artificial leaves where they can live peacefully close to the beekeeper for handling and extraction of extra honey. Beekeeping, which is most popular from March to May, can be a successful business. Italian bees are widely available for beekeeping in places like Bihar, Chennai, etc.

Honey Beekeeping-Indian Scenario

Beekeeping is being practiced traditionally in India since time immemorial

  • Similar to dairying, apiculture is primarily carried out by small-scale and landless farmers.

  • It also boosts agricultural income, creates jobs, and helps in enhancing the nutritional intake of the rural population. About 3 lakh rural residents are employed by it. 

  • By cross-pollinating plants, honeybees help maintain plant biodiversity and increase crop harvests. Depending on the crop, this growth has been demonstrated to be between 5 and 3000%.

  • Currently, 75–85% of apiary honey and more than 50% of all produced honey are exported.

  • About 61% of the nation's honey output was produced by just 4 States: West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Bihar.

  • Punjab, West Bengal, Bihar, Kerala, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Uttarakhand are the states classified as having "High Potential" based on their potential for production.

  • The National Commission on Agriculture had projected that 12 of the nation's most important agricultural crops would require the pollination of around 150 million bee colonies.
