I would like to create a new post on beekeeping in Asia with Apis cerana.
I am working in India with Apis cerana indica, but I am not able to easily find forum about the Asian bees.
I started a pollinator program with women beekeeper and I would like some advice.
I would like to know what are the perfect condition for Apis cerana to stay in a hive. I have some difficulties to understand them.
For example is it better to put the hive in a shady area or sunny area? Which direction the entrance should face? Any trick to reduce the chance of absconding?
