After an expedition into Tanzania in 2006, I took great interest into traditional African beekeeping. Mainly, how inefficient it is. They have log hives propped up in trees for animal protection. Plus they have to destroy the colony when they harvest.
In 2011, I finally wrote the definitive monograph on swarm traps and bait hives which will hopefully help other beekeepers learn to catch spring swarms.
