Apiculture - Apis dorsata hive

Main topic Apiculture
Apiculture (beekeeping) is maintaining honey bee colonies and collecting honey, beeswax and other products.

Domesticating honey bees is very ancient and evidence of apiculture can be found in ancient cultural artifacts in China, Greece, Middle East, Near East, Egypt and Maya areas.

Francois Huber (July 2, 1750 – December 22, 1831) and his assistant Francois Burnens made detailed study about the social and colonial life of honey bees and their breeding and propagation. He had written his observations in "Nouvelles Observations sur Les Abeilles". For his contribution to apiculture he is regarded as "the father of modern bee-science".
