Rainy season in Burkina faso

Honey ready for sale
Honey ready for sale

Between June and end of September it is rainy season in Burkina Faso. 

Not many flowers for the bees to bring polen to the hives. 

Some beekeepers are planning to take honey from the beehives end of October. We beleive that it is not good for the swarm which might have difficulties to feed the pups. If it is the case, the swarm will leave the hives to look elsewhere for more food.

End of October, beginning of October, beekeepers do look at their hives, but only to clean the bars if needed and to also cut the grass around the hives. Hives are placed in the bush and they are often bush fires which would destroy the hives if their surrounding is not clean.

The women takes good care of their hives in contrary to the men. They understand that hives will bring income only if well taken care of.

We have still many women in the villages who are asking us for beehives. Thank you to communicate to your network about their need.

ASAP is 25 years in 2022. We have made a short video about our economical projects, one of them being beekeeping. The link for the video is attached to this report.

Thank you,
