Studies on the management of the Indian honey bee, Apis cerana indica F. and the European honey bee, Apis mellifera L. in rubber plantations



Studies on the management of the Indian honey bee, Apis cerana indica F. and the European honey bee, Apis mellifera L. in rubber plantations



Rubber Board Bulletin 27(2): 5-6



In India, the nectar flow from rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) is from January to March and honey bees collect large quantities of nectar from the extrafloral nectaries. During the remainder of the year, alternative sources of forage are required and details of 5 species, including their flowering periods, are given.
