BHUTAN, THE FIRST CARBON NEGATIVE COUNTRY

Bhutan is the first and only carbon-negative country in the world that is governed by the Gross Happiness Index. About 72 percent of their land mass is to be conserved as forested area. It emits 1.5million tons of carbon while its forests absorb about 6 million tons of carbon.  

 

BHUTAN APICULTURE ACTIVITIES 

Bhutan Sour Honey locally called "Putka Honey" is a superfood harvested by the stingless bees called Melipona under the tribe of Meliponini. 

Stingless Bee Melipona forages in the protected regions of Bhutan between 700 to 1500 meters above sea level at Lokchina Gewog, Chukha District. Harmful pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are not permitted in Bhutan, therefore, Bhutanese farmers have to rely on Stingless Bee Melipona to pollinate their crops and increase their yields.

This working relationship with nature ensures the purity of the honey, and that it is not contaminated by pesticides or pollution.

 

APIS MELLIFERA COMPARISON W/ STINGLESS BEE MELIPONA

Unlike the farmed European honey bees (Apis Mellifera), Stingless Bee Melipona has a high tolerance to predators and diseases because of their size and extensive use of propolis, which serves as germicidal and repellent. 

Due to their stingless bee Melipona's small size, they collect nectar within a radius of 300-500 meters of the hive. Hence while farmed European honey bees can produce around 25kg of honey a hive per year, these stingless honey bees produce only around 700g of honey a hive per year.

 

STINGLESS BEE MELIPONA ANATOMY 

Stingless Bee Melipona is much smaller in size as compared to the usual yellow and black honeybees; about three to five millimeters in size, and a slimmer body structure.
