Training to Wild Honey Be Keeper:

Honeybees play an important role in the creation and conservation of biodiversity. However, the existence of honey bees is threatened by various factors. The use of pesticides on agricultural and horticultural crops has devastating effects on honeybees. Unscientific collection and destruction of hives is also a major cause of loss of bee and the diversity. Rock beehives are usually found on top of trees in the forest.
