Honey Bees normally use an area within a radius of 10-30 meters of their beehive as a toilet zone. It is estimated that an average beehive produces as much as 45-50 kg of bee dung a year, neatly deposited around the beehive as high nitrogenous manure.
“When it rains, this pollen dung gets washed into the soil, breaks down and provides an excellent natural fertilizer.
“Hence, to a farmer rearing bees in a field to pollinate the crop, he gets an additional bonus in the form of manure.”
