What is Apiculture?
Apiculture is the practice of beekeeping, involving the management and care of bee colonies, particularly honeybees. Beekeepers, known as apiarists, engage in apiculture to maintain bee colonies for various purposes, including honey production, pollination of crops, and beeswax harvesting. The term “apiculture” encompasses activities such as providing suitable hives, ensuring the health of bee colonies, and managing their behavior. It plays a crucial role in agriculture and environmental sustainability due to the essential role bees play in pollination, contributing to the reproduction of flowering plants and the production of various crops.
