The majority of beekeepers do not have much knowledge about the importance of raising queens. Which led us to focus on the interest and the advantage of this breeding, which is mainly the gain of the time and the productivity of the colony. To list its advantages, a comparative study was carried out from June 3rd, 2013 to September 3rd, 2013 between two colonies; one introduced a queen ready and the other that she should raise her queen. After three months of weekly interventions, a difference was evoked between the two colonies in the production of honey and in the provisions of the pollen and in the number of bees in the colony. This difference was noticed during the three months of experimentation that was triggered by a month of delay of the bee package slope. Therefore, the introduction of a queen already high in artificial swarming is very necessary to properly manage the bee population and well-controlled time.
