C., some writings were also found about the honey bee dating back to 2000 years. Kurdistan region is considered home to the original strain of bees deployed in Iraq and its neighboring countries.
The bee-keeping in Iraq flourished and evolved in the seventies of the nineteenth century and has arrived at 450,000 four hundred and fifty thousand local and modern beehives, but begin to deteriorate before the beginning of the Iranian-Iraqi war because of the wrong policies of the government at the time( forced displacement – Al-Anfal- Chemical attack)  and deteriorated completely until the end of 1988 but flourished again in the beginning of the nineties from the last century due to the import of bees from neighboring countries, especially Iran and has now reached more than 250,000 two hundred and fifty thousand beehives, but the problems and obstacles need to be resolved through scientific means.
