The wild honey sellers

It seems that a parking strip opposite our Moo Ban exit is a popular drop off place for street sellers. Nearly every morning we see a pick up truck unloading either pillows and bed covers, mattrasses or - honeycombs.


The guys who are selling the honey and the combs are provided with a bicycle that was also unloaded from the truck and have to roam the street the whole day.
From what the combs looked like I guess it is wild honey that was collected in the forests – and maybe illegally.
Not sure if it actually a good idea to take the combs out large scale because it destroys a bee colony, and bees are so needed for pollination.
