BeeKeeping to save the honey bees

To Save the Honeybee is important for our Environment Pollination.

Why Beekeeping.PK?

Pakistan is one of the many countries in a world where honey bees are slowly disappearing. There is little or no awareness about this issue. We came to know the scarcity of the information and equipment when we thought of setting up a beehive. Hence, we decided to set up a website where we can discuss how can we save honeybees ( and ourselves ) by spreading awareness about Bees. We are no beekeepers, but with this effort, we hope to get into this hobby of beekeeping.

What is honeybee?

A honey bee is a flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade. They are close relatives of wasps and ants.They are known for construction of perennial, colonial nests from wax, for the large size of their colonies, and for their surplus production and storage of honey, distinguishing their hives as a prized foraging target of many animals, including honey badgers, bears and human hunter-gatherers

About Bees

Queen Bee

Queen Bee

The largest bee in the colony is the Queen bee. The wings of the queen bee is the half way down her abdomen.She is the only queen in a colony of honey bees that may number 60,000 or more.

Drone Bee

Drone Bee

Drone is a male bee. They don't like the female worker bees.They do not have stingers and neither they can collect a nectar nor pollen. A primary role of drone is to mate with an unfertilized queen.

Worker Bee

Worker Bee

A worker bee is just a bee that works. Dependings on her age she has a different roles in hives.When she is young her role is nurse bee.Her work is to take care of the larvae Bee.

Pollination For Beekeeping

For the pollination of plants bees are required because bees can makes the indispensable pollinators ecosystems. The flowering plant species population is 369,000 and 90% of them are dependent on insect pollination.Usually honeybee can visit 50-1000 flowers in one trip if bee takes ten trips a day, a colony with 25,000 forager bees can pollinate 250 million flowers in a day.The researchers estimate that almost one-third of the human food supply has  to rely on insect pollination. Most of the ancient plants were pollinated by wind.  Conifers, grasses, and many other trees are still wind-pollinated. Most flowering plants, however, use living organisms to aid in this transfer. Bats and  birds can pollinate just a limited number of plants, but the vast majority of plants are pollinated by insects.Some butterflies, ants, flies, beetles, wasp and moths pollinate the various flowers, but bees are responsible for the vast majority of pollination. Since all types of honey bees live on nectar and pollen, thus pollination would be difficult and time consuming without honey bees.

Threats to Bee Species

  • Widespread use of pesticides, neonicotinoids and GMOs
  • Climate change
  • Loss of habitat, including land use changes, habitat fragmentation, loss of bio-diversity
  • Bees forced into service  monoculture
  • Pests, diseases, viruses, and mold

Beekeeping Workers Works

The honey bees perform pollination because they live on nectar and pollen. Since many important crops are pollinated by honey bees.So, the one -third of human food supply, would be very difficult without bees.

Pollination

Pollination is the act of transferring pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma.

beehive

Beehive

A beehive is an enclosed, man-made structure in which some honey bee species of the sub genus Apis live.

Honey bee

Nectar

Nectar is a sugar-rich liquid produced by plants in glands called nectaries, which attracts pollinating animals.
