The pygmy canopy honey. At over 40 metres above the ground, the honey-hunters smoke the bees and gather the honey from the forest canopy. During the little honey season in April and May, the harvests are smaller than during the big season in August and September. Several nests are harvested each day. 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 the ?Douma?, the honey wine, is made. Likouala, Congo
