  Honey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The main uses of honey are in cooking, baking, spreading on bread or toast, and as an addition to various beverages such as tea.
Without commercial beekeeping, large-scale fruit and vegetable farming and some of the seed industry would be incapable of sustaining themselves, since many crops are pollinated by migratory beekeepers who contract their bees for that purpose.
The beekeeper encourages overproduction of honey within the hive so that the excess can be taken without endangering the bees.

 Encyclopedia Smithsonian: Killer Bees
Interbred colonies of European and Africanized honey bees may differ in pollination efforts, be more aggressive, excessively abandon the nest, and not survive the winters.
Further, beekeepers may not continue their business of honey production if faced with aggressive bees.
The second strategy is requeening frequently, where the beekeeper replaces the queen of the colony, thus assuring that the queens are European Honey Bees and that mating has also occurred with European drones.

 Aristotle's Biology [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Though Aristotle’s observations on bees in HA seems to be entirely from the beekeeper’s point of view (HA 625b7-22), he does note that there are three classes of bees and that sexual reproduction requires that one class give way.
He begins his discussion in the Generation of Animals with the following remark, “The generation of bees is beset with many problems” (GA 759a 9).
[This would have been the correct response.] However, since none of the beekeepers reported anything like reproductive behavior among bees and because Aristotle’s own limited observations also do not note this, he is reluctant to make such a reply.
