Uganda bee keeping

Biking in the country side i met to young guys dealing with beekeeping. I couldn’t resist to stop.

They have about 9 families. Most of their beehives are on the side of the road empty for advertisment. The other are in the bushes in the middle of the forest. They squeeze the honey out of the wax by pressing it manually. They have no specific tool other than a smoke maker, gloves and mask. Sometimes they gather familys in the forest by cutting a trunk in two. The queen is takem appart from the rest of the family by a metal net you can see on the fourth photography.
