 , larva or caterpillar, pupa, and adult stage 

two types of eggThere are those who are living, the other non-living. From living eggs, queen and room bees are born and from non-living eggs, male bees are born, they are fed royal jelly for 3 days, after which the food of queen room and male bees is separated, the 

queen infant receives honey and pollen.mixture and the male baby is fed Dawn jelly.

 Bees are very sensitive insects with changing seasons. Their boxes are taken care

Importance of pollination 

According to scientific research, 77% of pollination is done by bees. 12% of other insects are done by insects, and 11% of pollination activities are done by water, wind and birds

. In insects, bees are the main pollinators. Yields by bees. The money received from the increase in the number of years can be about 20 times more than the amount of honey or wax given by them. A bee has to visit about 32000 flowers to collect one pound of honey. And they visit up to 100 flowers at a time.

Care of the Bees Family:

Bees are very weather-sensitive social insects, so they must be given special attention in different seasons to avoid damage to our Bees family.

How to take care of a bee in the cold In

the cold season, our temperature becomes very low, which is very harmful for the bees offspring. Therefore, in order to protect it from this, inside the box of our bees lineage, with the help of sack or sackcloth, the lid should be closed by making two folds. If possible, except the hole in the box, pack the entire box from outside with polythene. And the bees should be kept in such a place where there is sunlight.

In the summer 

season, our temperature reaches about 40 degree centigrade during the summer season, which makes it difficult to raise our bees. To diagnose this problem, keep the box in such a place where there is a system of shade and clean clean water.

And the box should be painted with white paint. Wherever appropriate, keep on transferring the bees lineage. At this time, there is also a shortage of natural food for the bees offspring, due to which artificial food should be arranged. And to prevent mite pest, formic acid 5ml should be given.

How to take care of bees in rainy season

season is the most opposite season for the Mau dynasty. Because at this time there is a lack of natural food all around. So that artificial feeding should be arranged. At this time there is a lot of outbreak of strong rain and autumn wind, ants and waxy moths. To protect it, artificial food is given. For that, after dissolving 400 grams of sugar with one kg of water, making sugar syrup, after cooling it, put super on them in boxes of bees descent. According to the number of bees lineage, take it out in a vessel after 6 pm and as soon as it is morning. Otherwise Robin’s problem will arise. The thing to keep in mind is to give only as much quantity as they can take overnight. Artificial food should not be given outside, otherwise there will be a fight between each other and our bees lineage will suffer. To protect from insects and ants at the time of rain, keep a bowl of water in the stand of the box. Due to which the chit could not enter.

How to divide and join bee families:

When the number of bees becomes very large, when it is from 90000 to 100000 in the box, when the environment is favorable for the bees, their numbers increase very rapidly. Then divide them in another box, if you do not do this then some flies run away.

And do this only when there is a very proper arrangement for their food and drink, that is, the season of flowers is in abundance. 

To do the division, first keep the second empty box near the family. After that, keep the queen frame in a separate new box, along with the honey and pollen frame. And the one that has been brooded 50 percent from the original family, keep it in the same old box, and the Kameri flies will become queen after 16 days, keeping both the boxes close by about 1 foot apart.

To add, when the bee’s family is without queen, and is weak, then in such condition it should be added to another family.

How to transfer bee family: 

About 4-5 cleaning should be done in a year. Due to which they do not feel sick. In cleanliness, it should be noted that 

while transferring the bees family from one place to another, keep the following in mind so that there is no harm to our bees lineage in any way. 

  1. Make sure to first check the place wherever the bee is relocating.
  2. time, While transferring it should be noted that it is very important to have clean water there, and at the same time  keep sprinkling water on the boxes during the journey.

Artificial food for the bees lineage

When there is a lack of pollen and nectar naturally, then artificial food has to be arranged for the growth of the bees lineage. So that our bees lineage should not be weakened. For this, 50 percent sugar syrup is made and food containing pollen is given to meet the shortage of pollen. Soyabean flour 25 percent, milk powder 15 percent and baking powder 10 percent, sugar, 40 percent and honey 10 percent should be kneaded together and after that it should be given.

Diseases of bees and their enemies

– protection of bees from insecticides

Farmers spray many types of insecticides to protect their crops from pests For the prevention of enemy pests, if there can be any other way except chemicals, then another control should be used for pest control.

The box can be closed for one to two in winter season but care should be taken to close the coffee in summer season.

Because bees are highly susceptible to disease.  

 This is essential for the successful venture of bees. That there should be complete information about all the diseases that occur in them. So that big loss can be avoided. 

 American Foulbrood: This is also an infectious disease caused by a bacterium Bacillus larvi. Which is similar to European foulwood, this disease appears even before the brackets are closed, which if the brackets do not close, even if they are closed, holes can be seen in their lids. A dead larva can also be seen inside it. Due to which the smell of rotten fish comes, their attack occurs in summer or after. 

Prevention :

 disease: It is caused by a protozoa Nosema apis. This disease disturbs the identification system of bees.

 Prevention :

 European Foulbrood: It is an infectious disease caused by a bacterium Melisococcus plutans. Its color is dark and adult fly does not emerge from them.

 Prevention: Affected offspring should be separated from the honey garden, frame and other material of affected offspring should not be allowed to come into contact with any other healthy lineage. The affected Maun dynasty should be made queenless.


This disease is found in abundance in Indian bees species. It is a viral disease that spreads through infection. 

Prevention: Once this disease is infected, its prevention becomes very difficult. There is no effective remedy for this, in case of infection, the affected offspring should be removed from the honey garden. 

 Acarine: This is a very small eight-legged creature that harms bees in many ways. In this disease, worker bees gather outside the bees house. Their wings become weak due to which they are unable to fly or they fall while flying. 

 Prevention: Spraying of 5 gm powder of Sulfur per seed should be done at an interval of one week. One ml of formic acid Putting the quantity in a small plastic vial and making a fine hole in its lid, 

waxy moth in each bees house: This moth is a great enemy of the bee lineage, it eats the wax of the roof by making an irregular shaped tunnel, the hive is hollow inside. it happens. by which the bees leave the hive and run away 



 Their outbreak is more in summer and year-round, to prevent them, fill water in the bowls of the stand and add a few drops of kerosene oil to it. So that the ants can be saved from climbing the bees houses. Should be kept Also, the availability of food in the bees house should be ensured.

 Tropyleops clari: This mite is mainly parasitic of the wild bee or the multicolored moose. It also occurs in Italian species. 

Prevention: It is prevented in the same way as accarine disease.

 Varoa mite: First this mite came to light only in Indian silence but now it is also seen in mellifera.

 Control: 5 ml of formic acid. It is controlled by applying it in the trial daily. Other measures should be taken in the same way as Ikermite.
