Rearing and Management of Apis cerana (F.) and Occurrence of Pests in Honeybee Colonies

M. K. H. Bhuiyan , M . M. Hossain and M. N. Bari

Abstract:
To study the life history combs of A. cerana were collected and studied in the laboratory. General external morphology including head, thorax, mouth parts, antennae, legs and abdomen of A. cerana was measured and different body parts were listed. Pollen gathering activity and brood rearing activity were studied throughout the year. The number of pollen gathering bees was the highest in the months of November to January. June to August proved to be the most unfavorable periods for pollen collection. The time of initiation and cessation of pollen gathering activity of A. cerana was recorded. The highest brood rearing activity was recorded during the months of December and January. May, June and July were the most unfavorable periods of the year. Artificial feeding of sugar syrup was necessary from May to August. Brood rearing activity in dearth period was increased with the increased amount of feeding. Greater wax moth infestation was controlled with proper management practices to maintain the colonies.
