    Hello Paul.
    I made a training landing up in the Luzon in about 1956 with the USMC. Loved the countryside and you friendly people! I walked over many miles of it and spoke with many friendly folk. Some fun.

    Hi paul, Yep it's Kyut or Kiyot but i believe they are not apis florea but trigona biroi friese. Let's discuss on this at the alternative pollinators page.

    Welcome Paul,
    How hard is it to get beekeeping equipment, in the Philippines, when you need it?
    I am thinking about setting up my wife;s family in beekeeping on Leyte if they can get the equipment locally.
    They are interested in trying to raise honey bees on the land there.
    Is there a market for the bees products?

    Hi goatman,

    try ordering here www.mileabeefarm.com for equipments like smokers, suit, knife, etc.

    For the hive, I suggest you give your wife a drawing with dimensions of the hive then let her look for carpenters locally who could make it. It would be much cheaper and faster that way.

    Or you could order here (uplbbeeprogram@yahoo.com) for the hives for 2500 pesos. Just send an email asking for list of bee supplies with prices.

    And for the bees, you could order from both link I stated above. "uplbbeeprogram" is much more expensive about twice the price from other bee farm (12000pesos/4 framer colony ). But they assure you their queens are of top quality disease free F1 queens

    Goodluck!
