The Banas were beekeepers well before becoming farmers ten years ago. Ownership of the trees bearing the hives predates land ownership and it is passed down by inheritance. So, on the land of Oïta’s concession, there is a tree holding a hive but Oïta owns neither one nor the other and in no case can he cut this tree down without the hive owner’s permission.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - A bee on the newly-built wax cells. We can see the different sizes of the cells for the males and for the others bees. The males' cells are a third bigger.

Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - In the hive between two parallel honeycombs. The bees store the nectar in the wax cells and, fanning it, transform it into honey by lowering the moisture level from 80% to 17%. The buccal exchange between bees, the trophallaxis, plays a role in the making of the honey through the addition of enzymes.Honey bee (Apis mellifera) - In the hive between two parallel honeycombs.

The pygmy canopy honey. Surrounded by “Libolis” trees, the camp of Massila groups together 5 huts. The huts are covered in Marantaceae leaves. The opening of forest roads in the last twenty-five years has profoundly changed the N’Bensele's way of life. Their relation with the Bantu masters has been modified; clothing and distilled alcohol has arrived in the camps and the villages. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. The honey basket, “pendi”, is filled with the honey from the harvest. It is lowered from the tree using a rope made of lianas. Honey is important in the Likouala and for the N’Bensele clan who specializes in this activity. August and September are the big honey season in these rainforests with big marshy zones that favor the proliferation of flowers and bees' nests. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. The honey-hunters have put the morning honey harvest on a Marantaceae leaf. The period with an abundance of honey is called “Nbosso”, August September. Everybody is in the forest and there's no one left in the village. It's during this period that they make “Douma”, the honey wine, or mead, that was until only recently the only alcohol consumed by the pygmy people. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. Surrounded by bees, the honey-hunter balancing on the tree trunk plunges his hand into the nest to harvest the honeycombs. In the N’Bensele clan, the best way to find a wife in the camp is to give her honey. A man has to know how to climb and not be afraid of stings. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. In the early morning following a stormy night that has made the temperatures drop, the women of the camp sing in unison to warm themselves. A moment of sharing in which smiles and good humour win out over the cold and damp of the night. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.

The pygmy canopy honey. A team of honey-hunters have just spotted the flight of bees towards a nest more than 50 metres high in an undergrowth of Mangobé plants. The big equatorial forest of Central Africa is the planets second lung. But in reality it is a very diversified ecosystem. Human presence in this forest goes back more than 20,000 years and during the last 5000 years there have been periods of drought linked to climatic changes. 2500 years ago, with the spreading of iron, and the arrival of the Bantu people, the forest cover was profoundly modified, the savannahs created. The Mangobe plants with an open undergrowth attest to ancient human occupation. These are often the spots where slash and burn has been practiced. Likouala, CongoThe pygmy canopy honey.
