What Is Kelulut Honey?

Kelulut Honey is the opposite of Tualang Honey, is made by tiny bees which is known as Trigona species. They are also identified as the stingless bees which may sounds like they are not dangerous and friendly but they are not. Stingless bees, sometimes called stingless honey bees or simply meliponines, are a large group of bees, comprising the tribe Meliponini. They belong in the family Apidae, and are closely related to common honey bees, carpenter bees, orchid bees, and bumblebees.

The still attack you to protect their colonies and their honey. But since they are stingless they are more annoying than scary when they swarm in your ears, hair and eyes. And most of the time you can feel their sticky legs which cause discomfort on your skin, and makes you feel like running away. But it is not all bad. I would say if the weather is a bit colder, the bees are a little calmer, you can actually have a nice experience of honey tasting.
