The desirable characteristics of selecting a bee variety for bee-keeping are listed below:

1. The bee variety should be carrying a gentle nature. Otherwise, they may bite human beings and harm them.

2. It must have a good honey collection capacity because the main purpose of bee-keeping is to increase the yield of honey.

3. It should be able to protect itself from pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. These organisms cause various infections in bees.

4. It must have a prolific queen with less swarming i.e., it should be able to produce higher number of offsprings or lay higher number of eggs.
