Bees Unlimited Siem Reap

Apis andreniformis


Back to Bee Photos

This Dwarf Honeybee species, somewhat smaller than its common ‘cousin’ Apis florea--both in size and in colony--whose name in Khmer translates as "dog poo", of all things, favours forest habitat. It is the only indigenous honeybee here in NW Cambodia that is not cosmopolitan; thus it is seldom encountered by the general population... and even less so by Bees Unlimited.
