Extraction of Honey

Rock bee training camp organised in deep forest areas of Peddamanthanala Chenchu Gudem.

The Chenchu youth were explained about the disadvantages associated with fire and squeezing the honey comb method which  is being employed currently by some of the Chenchus. Alternative methods  to reach out  to difficult location(caves or creeks), remove only honey portion in a safer manner on  several times, establish new colonies in ideal locations are explained in theoretical and practical ways . Chenchu youth with the help of protective equipment are  extracting honey especially from the caves or creeks in the forests. Youth is happy about the usefulness of the technique and the equipment. On the whole the improved methods are being slowly accepted by the Chenchu Community and there is huge demand for the equipment in future.
