Highlighting the unique and dying tradition of rafter beekeeping of the Giant Honeybee, Apis dorsata, practiced by few, near Siem Reap, in NW Cambodia — and the efforts of an innovative team of beekeepers—one, a traditional honey-hunter/rafter beekeeper himself—to turn this seasonal activity into a sustainable livelihood for many, and to promote appropriate technology beekeeping of indigenous bees.

RAFTER BEEKEEPING: A technique/tradition, where honey-hunters place tree poles—"rafters"—which mimic the
large tree branches they normally colonize, at a slight angle and low to the ground, to encourage migrating
Giant Honeybees to settle on them. The end result: safe-and-easy access to honey--
and an opportunity to view them in person, on a Bee Tour with Bees Unlimited--Your Temple Tour Alternative!

Pioneers in Their Field

Bees Unlimited, based in Siem Reap Province, is the leader in Cambodia when it comes to promoting the practices of rafter beekeeping and sustainable honey-harvesting; it is also the only facilitator of its kind in the country with a comprehensive village-based beekeeping program that combines appropriate technology with hands-on, practical training in indigenous bee beekeeping.

Bees Unlimited works primarily with traditional Honey-Hunters and Rafter Beekeepers, specializes in Rafter Beekeeping and Sustainable Honey-harvesting, and is available to assist international organizations, non-governmental organizations, local communities, and individuals where the potential for such activities in Cambodia exist.

Bees Unlimited offers hands-on training in indigenous bee beekeeping. We work with the following bees:

dorsata florea
Giant Honeybees (Apis dorsata) Dwarf Honeybees (Apis florea)
cerana trigona
Asian Hive Honeybees (Apis cerana) Stingless Bees (Trigona)

Contact Bees Unlimited to learn how you can make a difference for good when it comes to beekeeping/sustainable honey-harvesting in Cambodia. While visiting Cambodia, contact Bees Unlimited to arrange a tour to a local community, where you can observe rafter beekeeping in action.

Bees Unlimited is not only helping to steer the 60-odd rafter beekeepers of NW Cambodia away from one-cut-take-all harvesting; it is also taking the unique--and dying--centuries-old tradition of rafter beekeeping to another level, by introducing it and sustainable honey-harvesting to other communities in Cambodia.
