Honey is not the basis of their diet, although it is one of their most valued foods.
To obtain it, hives are scattered across the length and breadth of the territory. In many cases to reach them it is necessary to walk for several days. The hives are made from tree bark and covered with grasses. Inside they place a piece of honeycomb for the bees to settle and create another.

By using creepers, they are hung from trees. To stop the bees from stinging, they light fires to produce smoke. This leaves them dozy and incapable of stinging. Nevertheless there are always some that do manage to sting. This has led their keepers to get immunised against such.
