As of today we have 300 hives in the field and the hives of Zangue, Santove and Mutondo have had occupations of over 80%, however the hives of Guma is only about a 20%. Reason for the low occupation of the latter is not known. James White, our project manager, says that the very unusual drought following early rains in 2009 has put the normal behavior out of kilt.

Thereafter harvesting will be done twice a year.
