Apiculture, the scientific management of bees in special enclosures in order to increase yield of hive products and gain pollination benefit, has a great future in Ghana if it is properly harnessed. Traditional method of honey production which is common in many parts of Ghana especially the Adaklu district could easily be improved upon for maximum output.
