Beekeeping with Apis florea in the Indus basin and some other areas

Bee World 78(2): 63-66
Beekeeping with Apis florea in the Indus basin and some other areas
In this part of Pakistan a beekeeper who finds an A. florea nest built on a branch supports its single comb (at a point above the brood area, but below the honey storage area) between the 2 halves of a split stick. After brushing the bees off the honey area on to the brood area, the beekeeper cuts the comb, just above the stick, and also the original branch; the honey comb can then be removed.
