An observation was carried out in Gujrat in a private Apiary. Variation in the activity of the honey bee with change in an available food month wise throughout the year was observed in the Apiary. All observations were recorded in questionnaires by carrying out visit to the Apiary, interview of Bee farmers and pictures by mobile phone. Examination of activity of honey bee of 130 boxes was observed throughout the year. The activity of honey bee involved food utilization (nectar, pollen and Sugar solution) throughout the year, comb production, honey production, egg laying and hatching of eggs. The months provided with a natural food show somewhat more positive yield. Bees were totally facilitated with natural food in the month of April, May, September and October.
