Apis Cerana


Hello best friends!!!


In this meeting I will review some of the insects that we often encounter around our environment, inadvertently they live with us together even though it lives in its nature, and we live near it.

Naturally, honey bees that live in this world act as honey-producing animals, which he gets from flower nectar. Insects such as bees can collect as much flower nectar as possible, which they process into honey that we often get in the hive.

In one research study that has been studied by experts, they say that honeybees are only found in the world as many as 7 species and most of them live in Indonesia. This is influenced by the climate in the region itself and there is also a forest environment that is still green. They live in every part of the continent except for the Antarctic continent.

In a summary of researchers the experts classify that honey bees are a class of insects or for Indonesians say the types of insects, which are classified into the order Apidae. The habit of them living in a colony by doing work together, he will always work together in collecting flower nectar and then brought back to their nest and then processed naturally to produce honey.

In the world history of honey bee insects, mostly found in South Asia and Southeast Asia, including the territory of Indonesia, there are 6 species that occupy the territory of Indonesia, only one species of native insects in addition to South Asian insects. The six species mentioned above are often found in Indonesian regions, if you visit Indonesian territory, especially the Aceh province, you often see them making nests around people's homes in rural areas.

Quoted from various references about it, namely the insects mentioned above are still in the territory of Indonesia. Well ... To find out more in detail their names, the authors will mention it in the table below. Next is the presentation.
