LA CERA DE LA WARRÉ

Share

As mentioned in the social aspect, honey yield tends to be lower in Warré hives; several sources mention a yield around 8 litres of honey per hive. This number depends on many variables such as the number of bees, the availability of forage sources… As 1L of honey is about 1.4 Kg, the hive could produce an extra of around 11.2 Kg of honey that can be harvested. At a value of 3.746 dollars per pound, the potential revenue from honey sales for a Warre hive would be around 90 $. However, derivatives with value added can be sold from the wax produced by the bees such as wax candles and other artifacts.
