Field investigations were carried out to determine the diversity and relative abundance of various honeybee species during 2011 and 2012. Total 184 samples were collected from 10 different localities in Murree and its vicinity. The majority of specimens (n=156, 84.78%) were from Apis cerana F. The ratio of Apis mellifera L.was 13.04% (n=24) and only 2.17% (n=4) honeybees belonged to Apis dorsata F. Although Apis florea F. is found in most parts of Pakistan but no specimen was observed in the study area.
