Hundreds of honeycomb removable frames are placed in single shed. Beekeepers provide the whole environment. They grow flowers and other best plants for bees to collect the sugar.

Wild honeycombs are difficult to find in the bushes or trees. People track flying bees to reach at their home. Wild bees are also dangerous to get closer. Smoke is only solution to get rid of bees and collect the honey.
