Abstract: Honey is a natural product produced by bees that collect nectar from plants the raw material (forage), which were sucked and collected, then processed and stored in the bee hives. The cultivation of stingless bees that produce honey will be successful when the environment is very supportive by providing many flowers and nectar-pollen-producing plants, as well as other sufficient food resources. Inappropriate temperature and annoying pests will destroy the bee colonies. This research, which observed the number of honey production from Trigona sp. bees, aimed to study: 1) The number of the average honey production per log, and 2) The effects of temperature, pests, nectar-producing plants, and log size on Trigona sp. bee honey production. The data of the Trigona sp. bee honey production were processed and analyzed using quantitative analysis through multiple linear regression. The equipments used were the Microsoft Excel software and the Stastitical Product Service Solution (SPSS) version 2.l. Total revenue produced by Trigona sp. bee honey was IDR 10.178.400/year. Total income per log was IDR 282.733/year. Test t indicated that the log size, nectar-producing plants, and pests significantly influenced the honey production. Test F indicated that nectar-producing plants, the log size, resin-producing plants, temperature, and pests significantly influenced the Trigona sp. bee honey production.
