There is a wide range of pests that attack bees, thereby reducing honey production. 

Some of these are insects like termites while others are reptiles or even mammals like the mongoose insects include hive beetles, termites, weaver ants, bee hornets and wasps. To stop these attacks, a farmer must carry out various interventions. 

-To stop bee hornets, look for their nests near the hives and destroy them manually. 

-To stop termites, smear burnt engine oil on the hive stands in order to stop them from climbing up. 

-To stop rats from going into the hives, make sure that the top cover of the hive is well set because that is where they pass to access the hives. You can also use a heavy object, placed on top of the cover to keep it in position. 

-To control wax moths, use improvised bottle traps with vinegar and water. Plastic mineral water bottles can do. The moth will be attracted to the bottle and it will not come out.
