Stingless Bees in NW Cambodia produce insignificant quantities of honey, as far as human consumption is concerned, but their larvae are relished by villagers. These bees—and there are a number of local species, some of which can be seen in the Angkor Temple Complex—are important pollinators of forest trees, family fruit trees, agricultural crops, and grasses.
Bees Unlimited introduces Stingless Bee beekeeping (in coconut shells) to villagers, for their value as pollinators, and as a stepping stone to encourage children to keep bees that sting.
