I am considering getting one hive for here at the house. 

 

I figure I could use the honey for my own consumption. Perhaps, have some for others as well.

Here's a good article in the Phnom Penh Post.

Farmers plan to be the bee’s knees

Most villagers seem relaxed after the rice harvest in Osado, just six kilometres from Pursat town off the road to Battambang. But farmer Eang Thy, 41, is still busy working behind his home, building hives and raising bees.

I have a friend who has done it in the past, who has been giving me some helpful advice. I'm also on a group that shares information on raising bees.

That was one of the first articles I found, regarding beekeeping. I read it and realized I could eat all the honey I want, and sell some as well.

Well Paul, before you start buying hives and all the gear normaly needed for beekeeping (lots of stuff), have a look at this brilliant new invention by a couple of Aus beekeepers.

 

It really works (videos and independent reports to back it up)

 

It revolutionises beekeeping. So easy, so clean and simple!

 

You can do beekeeping in shorts, thongs and a baseball cap!

 

Good luck with it!

 

Lots of stuff on the net - here is a URL to get started
