Honey production is a manifestation of the instinct to accumulate food reserves in rich periods, in order to survive in periods without harvest.

Of the total amount of honey collected by the bee colony, one part remains as a food reserve, and the other is extracted by the beekeeper – this is the amount of merchandise honey.

Those who have this developed instinct are part of the elite families. They are more diligent – they start work early and finish it late.
