Most hives are fully occupied, fences are being weighed down with honey. Now it is time to put in the super box and queen excluders.

An overview of the Kamungi Beehive Fence pilot project - March 2017
In collaboration with Dr King and her renowned Elephants and Bees Project, Tsavo Trust have implemented three pilot beehive fence projects based on the highest results-oriented models for construction and monitoring within the Kamungi Conservancy.
Each farm is located quite some distance apart and all agreed they would be ideal candidates. The farmers agreed to section off one acre of each farm to construct three pilot beehive fence trial sites with the guidance of Lucy and her expert team.
