Adoption of the modern langstroth bee hive, which has vertically hung frames, allowing three times the storage capacity that the circular long hive offers, has seen Ezekiel Mumo triple his yields from harvesting 10kgs of honey to 30kgs per hive, each season. Consequently, his income has tripled to Sh15,000 from Sh5,000 as the farm price for each kilo gram is Sh500. Now, with a capacity of 35 hives, Ezekiel earns Sh525,000 every season.
