Beekeepers in Kenya are turning to bee venom extraction as a lucrative alternative to traditional honey harvesting. Using specialized collectors, beekeepers can stimulate bees to excrete venom without harming them. Each bee only contains a few milligrams of venom, making the extraction process intricate and time-consuming. The local market values a gram of bee venom at $30, while the international market sees prices reach $100. Alternative medicine practitioners are increasingly using bee venom in treatments, citing its ability to trigger the production of beneficial antibodies in the body. The rise of the bee venom industry highlights the balance between economic opportunity and ecological responsibility.
