      The economic gains due to honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) agricultural pollination are evaluated. The method of analysis focuses on the gains to consumers through lower prices for crops that are benefited by honey bees. Economic demand functions for the major agricultural crops that are pollinated by bees are by: Italian honey bees, of the subspecies Apis mellifera ligustica, were brought to the United States in They quickly became the favored bee stock in this country and remain so to this day. Known for their extended periods of brood rearing, Italian bees can build colony populations in the spring and maintain them for the entire : David Tarpy.

      As for U.S. honey production, there are beekeepers in all 50 states, but here are the top 10 states that produce the largest amounts of honey. 1. North Dakota. 2. South Dakota. 3. Montana. 4.

In order to build an even more robust scientific body of knowledge on honey bees at USDA, NASS began in to collect data on honey bee health and pollination costs.

HAWAII: Honey bees have been in the state of Hawaii for over years. Two of Hawaii’s biggest beekeeping specialties are honey production and queen breeding. Queen breeders are people who raise queen bees that are then sold to beekeepers to put in their hives.

They play an important role in the beekeeping industry. the future in order to maintain this critical component of production in the United States.

United States honey production in from producers with five or more colonies totaled million pounds, up three percent from There were million colonies from which honey was harvested inup four percent from Yield of honey harvested per colony averaged pounds, down one percent from the pounds in Agriculture is enough of a gamble, which is why for maximum production of insect pollinated crops honey bees are the vital part of production.

Honey bees are in decline. Over the last years honey bee parasites, predators and diseases never before found in the U.S. have decimated and weakened the feral and managed population. Producer honey stocks were million pounds on Decemdown 26 percent from a year earlier. Stocks held by producers exclude the million pounds, held under the commodity loan program.
