Poison sting is very suitable for the treatment of various diseases. Bees are cultivated by most farmers in the world originally came from mainland Europe.
Capital required in raising honey bees is the basic knowledge in beekeeping honey, fixed capital investment required in beekeeping activities over a period of harvesting, including the means of production and honey bee colony is ideally a minimum of 40 boxes 100 boxes of honey bee colonies.
Selection of superior species seedlings Honey Bees

The characteristics of super quality seeds honeybees:

  • Has a queen bee who is physically good and aged between 3 months to 1 year
  • The number and quality of eggs produced many queen bees
  • Yields a much better yield of honey, bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis
  • Bee larvae produced more fresh
  • Bees are usually more aggressive

Increase the honey bee colonies

Raising honey bees in order to produce optimal gains a honey beekeeper should have a minimum of 100 boxes of honey bee colonies. Measures to increase the number of honey bee colonies:
  • Take care honey bees at the location provided enough feed. With the availability of adequate feed the queen bee will produce more eggs and the worker bees are also more keen to make a new nest.
  • Prepare candidates for queen honey bees to be placed in the new colonies of honey bees.
  • Separating the honey bee colony that has been solid in the box of the new colony of honey bees and a new queen bee placed candidate or another queen that is so.

Make nominee Queen Bee

1. Take the honey bee larvae newly hatched age 1 day
2. Put into a one-piece frame Royal jelly
3. Frame Royal jelly is a honey bee larva is fully in place at the super box (the box containing the honey bee honey bee colonies at least 2 levels)
4. Bulkhead / separate box with a super bee honey bee queens were in the box below and frames royal jelly honey bee queen candidates placed in the box above. So the queen honey bee can not approach a potential queen honey bees.
5. Let stand for 11 days until the candidate becomes queen bee pupae.
6. After eleven days calin queen bee boxes transferred to the besisi bee colony without the queen.
7. 13 days out prospective queen bee pupae and directly appointed by the queen bee bee colony
8. Usually after a week of the queen bee is ready to mate and develop new bee colonies are occupied.

Honey Bee Farming Equipment:

  • Box of bees, the honey bee colony made of wood or Mahogany Suren
  • Smoker tool to tame aggressive honey bees
  • Protective mask attack honeybees
  • Levers strokes
  • Brush strokes of honey bees
  • Strokes made of a wooden frame and given the middle ground wire as a drag honeycomb
  • Bee Pollen Pollen Trap for harvesting
  • Frame Royal jelly Royal Jelly to harvest and make prospective Queen Bee
  • Extraktor to harvest honey

Grazing Honey Bees

Between May and September is the time when beekeper bee honey bee pasture to plantations that provide enough feed honey bees.
Honey beekeepers on the island of Java generally takr the honeybees into rubber plantations, Kapok, Rambutan, Longan, Mango, Coffee and Duwet. thus generated based on the specifications of flowers honey.
Between May hinga September is the time when farmers enjoy the sweetness of the honey bee income from honey bees like honey from a variety of flowers, Bee Pollen and Royal Jelly.

After September honey beekeepers experiencing lean times, where the honey season is over. To cover the cost of treatment of the honey bee breeders generally take the bees to farm corn, honey beekeepers here can produce corn Bee Pollen and Royal Jelly.
The usual obstacles faced Beekeepers Honey:
1. Natural factors (weather):
In 2007, many honey beekeepers out of business because erratic weather. Beekeepers as our example calculations prior year longan honey harvest usually around September. Assuming the beekeeper honey bees will mengembalan Ambarawa but due to the erratic weather turns longan trees bloom failed.
Breeders who are already bringing bees to the colony where it would be a great loss in addition to the cost of expensive tarnsportasi too many bees are dying of hunger.
2. Community Environment
Indonesian Society things many beekeepers honey crop pests. So most people will repel incoming honey beekeepers to areal plantation. Or if it be allowed as a land lease beekeeping is very expensive.
This is very different from the honey beekeepers overseas. precisely beekeepers looking to help pollinate the estate and be rewarded for helping to improve agricultural production.
Requirements to be successful in this business enough to gain knowledge and apply knowledge about the life of a bee colony. For example, the ideal temperature is suitable for bee is about 26 degrees C, at this temperature the bees can work normally. Temperatures above 10 degrees C still bees. On the slopes of mountains / highlands normal temperature (25 degrees C). Bees preferred location is the open, away from the crowds and there are many flowers as feed.
