Beekeeping is becoming more popular in Cambodia
Parrothead posted a topic in Farming & GardeningIn the past few months, one Ukrainian guy that I know of, and one Khmer fellow, have started beekeeping businesses. The Ukrainian guy is within two hours of Battambang. The Khmer fellow lives in Phnom Penh. I am really glad to see this happening. The Ukrainian fellow has whole frames of honey (3kg to 4kg), at $18 USD, each. He also sells honey by the bottle, $10 USD. He also sells nucs, hives, and bees. ============================== The Khmer fellow has a neat looking hive, he says is Vietnamese, for $35 USD: Hives at $90 USD. Hives at $60 USD. Extractor at $130 (3 frame) Extractor at $200 (4 frame).
Our first nuc, well on its way to becoming established.
Parrothead posted a topic in Farming & GardeningThis is a video I shot on Monday morning, September 4th, just before 08:00 local time. By moving the mother hive I split this nuc from, and putting the nuc in its place, this caused all the foraging bees to return to the nuc rather than to the mother hive. (I rang James (jimmyboy) to confirm what I needed to do at the time. I was fairly sure, but not 100%, as to what I needed to do with both hives after the split.) Anyway, this video is from the following morning, after we had completed the split. They were bringing in resources as fast as they could, to that little nuc. Hopefully, I will be able to make another split very soon, from that same mother hive.
