Bee box in our garden, Avissawella, Sri Lanka.

We have been  having bee colonies in boxes in our garden for nearly 20 years. You can harvest about 6 to 8  bottles of bee honey every year from each box. The bees are harmless and do not interfere with human life if left alone. They increase the fruit yield in our garden especially from the coconut trees. They give you a superb leisure activity. You can get a bee box with a colony from the Agricultural department. If you go into Youtube on the internet you can get any amount of advice on their maintainance.I got these pictures from our bee box and will publish more. This is one of the best eco-friendly activities that you can do.
