Beekeeping with Indian hive bee Apis cerana indica F. in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands






Indian Bee Journal 55(1/2): 1-8

Beekeeping with Indian hive bee Apis cerana indica F. in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Apis cerana colonies have been successfully kept (in hives) on the islands since 1980. Flowering plants provide a good nectar flow from January to May, but careful colony management is needed during the prolonged rainy season (June-October). Feeding with sugar has been found impractical because of the unpredictable weather and the high humidity, so it is essential to leave enough honey in a hive for the dearth period.
