Waiting for the harvest of honey

Since last report there was not much human activities around the hives. However it is a period when bees are working overtime.

Most of the fruit trees are in full blossom: mango, cashew ,locust bean and shea nuts trees.

It is the time also when some hives swarms. This happens mainly when the hive is overcrowded. This swarm with the old queen will look for a proper place stay. We have several cases when the swarm goes into building. This can create a lot of problem. At our Private Agricultural School we can barely get some equipment from a workshop. Bees are not naturally aggressive, but when on the move you better stay away. We had two girls with multiple bites whom we had to take to the local hospital for treatment.

We are approaching the main harvest time. We expect to have the beekeepers active with the harvesting of the honey has of mid-March.

Next report we will be able to tell you how was the harvest, according to some beekeepers it looks like a good year for honey.

Women will be very pleased with their extra income. I am sure that you know somebody who can help a women to become a beekeeper. Bees communicate with dances, you only have to send a link to your friends.

Thank you for your continuous support.
