Are you looking for information about honey bees types? If you are, I can tell you that
several times a search was done around this topic on Google. This is one of the
reasons that led me to write this article. Honey is a very beneficial product. However,
are all honey bees types suitable for honey production? For an answer to this
question, I invite you to read this article.

Some Honey Bees Don't Tolerate a Lot of Disturbances

In this part of the article, I hope to make an overview of two honey bees types. These
are the apis florae and the apis dorsata. Why these honey bees types? This question
can really be justified. Actually, the bees mentioned earlier do not tolerate a lot of
disturbances. In fact, certain honey bees types can completely leave their hive when
disturbed. Consequently, it could be said that these bees will not be the best choice for
beekeeping. The two types presented in this category do not tolerate the amount of
disturbances that readily domesticated bees can bear. Actually, these bees don’t seem
to really give one the choice, because the apis dorsata like the apis florae might
abandon their hives when disturbed. Consequently, one can imagine how hard it can be
to work with bees that can decide to leave the hive.

Apis Dorsata…

With these honey bees types let’s start with the apis dorsata type, also called rock bee.
It is in fact a species of bees that is composed of quite big honeybees, compared to
other bees species. Interestingly bees from this type are not likely to create traps made
of propolis or glue. One could find the apis dorsata’s hives suspended from stable
supports in dense forest. The suspension of these hives meters above the ground can
work as a safety measure against honey lovers of bigger size.

Now, the Apis Florae

The dwarf bee and the apis dorsata share some commonalities. They both can abscond
due to disturbances and they construct suspended hives. Propolis can be put on the
end of the hive as a trap for other insects. The apis florae also called the dwarf bee is
seen as smaller than all the other known honey bees species. Additionally to the fact
that the apis florae might abscond because of disturbance, the quantity of honey that
could be harvested from the hive is likely to be less than the quantity of honey obtained
from a domesticated colony.
