Excerpt from Honeybees and Honey Production in the United States The large number of bees indicated in the Southeastern States and particularly in the Appalachian section, while reﬂecting an undoubted fact, carries an impression stronger than the facts warrant, partially because the territory, is predominantly rural, but more because in that region the colonies are, to a greater extent than elsewhere, kept in small boxes, kegs, and similar receptacles which limit the size of the colony and cause heavy swarming. This latter fact tended to further exaggeration because at the time the census was taken swarming was well advanced in the South though hardly begun in the North.
