Boys hunting honey

I came across these boys in Sokhulu hunting honey and brood. The used crushed paraffin bush to chase the bees off the combs. They ate both the honey and the brood and were unaware that bees could be farmed, and money could be earned from them. By Guy Stubbs 2016

1. Picking the paraffin bush.

 

2. Crushing the paraffin bush to release the stink.

 

3. Inserting the crushed paraffin bush into the bee nest. The bees moved off the comb away from the stink.

 

4. The boys then harvested the comb.
