Lithuanian terminology of beekeeping is fairly little studied. Inconsiderable part of apiculture terminology is included in The Encyclopedia of Agriculture but no separate Lithuanian dictionary of this field is prepared. A book on bees by Simonas Daukantas (1793–1864), native from Skuodas rustic estate, exists for a little more than 150 years. Over 200 terms related to apiculture are analyzed in the article according to their meaning, their alteration; words not existing in the present speech as well as terms that are likely created by the author himself are discussed.
