SNIPPETS FROM THE EBOOK

“When it is time for the beekeeper to collect honey, he would start a mild smoke by burning a cotton thread, which will drive the bees away, while he tries to recognize the queen bee, locally called kiaw. Once he catches the queen bee, he keeps her in the hollow of a log he has made. The log is called dieng Lakhiat (Dieng means tree and Lakhiat is the local name of the tree)”
