Here are some ideas and good advice in maximizing honey production.
Know the basics of beekeeping. You just cannot wave a magic wand and have bees come and produce honey for you, it
does not work that way, otherwise, everyone else would be doing the same thing.
In fact, you may need to know how to harness the capability of bees in ensuring their honey production, that is
by knowing the ideal conditions on how they thrive and produce, how they get their sustenance and if not, how you
may be able to intervene in feeding them during lean nectar and pollen collecting seasons.
Next, know how to make sure how to make and maintain their habitats. Ever since man discovered how to
synthetically create bee habitats, it made it possible for man to know how to make these habitats for bees and
ensure that they continue to live and produce season over season.
Always ensure they have ample supply of food, if not through the normal and natural nectar and pollen gathering
processes, you must need to know how to provide sustenance for your colonies like feeding them with sugar syrup or
