    What is the brood cycle like for these bees? How long from egg laid to bee emerged? Awesome pictures by the way! Neat to see the journey.

    I'm not really sure about the brood cycle. I can't find a lot of documentation about this species. I'm now looking forward to multiply my hives to at least 100 in the next two years.

    Hello @alvinsambas. Sorry for the late reply. Nice to know there are other stingless beekeepers here in Mindanao. Do you have a facebook account? I'm interested to talk and share ideas with about stingless bees.

    No frames unlike the langstroth design. The wire mesh will help hold the honeycombs in place once the bees start to settle in.




    Beeswax are placed inside to attract bees. It is supposed to be melted and brushed on to the walls but I got too lazy. Lemongrass are also rubbed on to the walls as bee attractant.








    The top bar where the bees will attach their honeycombs.



    Ready to go!
    Kumusta po Apo Mariano.. I have to ask U about apis cerana indica... Will this kind of bees will fill ur 2 boxes with their natural honey comb like Japonica? I have a 2 colonies of cerana.. John

    Love this Honey. We go down to Peru in the Amazon 2x a year. I facilitate Ayahuasca Tours.
    There is a family raising stingless bees in Puerto Gennerro on the Ucayali. I get a liter of liquid gold every year
    them, maybe if lucky I can get 2 liters.
    They have internet there deep in the Amazon, hey the Amazon is being lit up with pole lighting now, frigging strange after 30yrs
    of exploring to see it change.
