After a long, cold winter, a bee colony
will begin to swell in numbers as the weather gets warmer.
Environmental and sustainability engineer at ASGC , Salar Memon, discovered the honey bee colony
Using his own experimental research and drawing on numerous studies, Seeley provides an in-depth scientific look at honey bee colony
nests, reproduction, food collection, temperature control, and more.
On average, each bee colony
gives up to ten kilograms of honey.
But starting a bee colony
is not as easy as just putting a hive on your property, there are things that need to be considered before you start your beekeeping journey.
Artificial Bee Colony
(ABC) is one of good heuristic intelligent algorithm to solve optimization problem including clustering.
He highlighted the major issues such as deforestation, indiscriminate use of pesticides, climate change effects as well as bee colony
Several nature-inspired optimization algorithms including particle swarm optimization algorithm , Bee algorithm , Firefly algorithm , Bat algorithm , and Artificial Bee Colony
(ABC) algorithm  have been developed and applied to solve the problems.
The paper is organized as follows: Section 2 describes Artificial Bee Colony
. Section 3 describes particle swarm optimization.
A modified variant of artificial bee colony
(ABC) algorithms, called radial artificial bee colony
(RABC) algorithm, was proposed.
The mite infestation was evaluated by opening 100 cells of sealed brood before treatment (Burgett and Burikam, 1985) while for the assessment of mite population in debris, mite collection trays were placed at the bottom of the bee colony
. The trays were left for 24h period and mites which fell on the trays were counted and used as measure for mite population (Devlin, 2001).
