and interviewing the samples which are 1 sage villager, 3 sage villagers
who are able to trap bees at the present and 7 successors of bee
trapping folk wisdom. The research shows that there are still sage
villagers who are good at trapping bees. The sage villagers still apply
this folk wisdom to trap bees. Moreover, this folk wisdom has been
passed on to younger generations. This is the way people adjust their
living to the environment under the concepts of folk wisdom, eco-culture
and ethnic ecology. Folk wisdom of trapping bees consists of tools
or materials used in trapping, process of trapping bees, and the belief
or the taboo of trapping bees that people should learn which ones
are “ Dos” and which ones are “ Don’ ts” . All of these reflect
the importance of this folk wisdom which must be studied, collected,

and ability to adjust the living. These bring about the knowledge
and know-how to live and become environmentally friendly. The natural
