Video of Beekeeping of Apis Dorsata aka Giant Honeybees

I’ve seen honey hunters cutting down the door sized single combs that Dorsata bees build. Normally the hunters are poor and they cut down the entire comb honey and all. The honey is drained, the brood might be eaten,

and the wax will be sold.  But this video shows honey hunters who are professionals, harvesting holes of honey from the combs in a sustainable way. Quite fascinating.
