Sougué Zama (Orange t-shirt) and Tiémounou Adama harvest termites that will be used to feed poultry. The technique of extracting termites is first dig into the side of a termite mound. Leaves are then packed into the hole and when they are removed a few hours later, they are covered with termites. Sougué Zama said, "If we do not use the leaves it is impossible to catch termites because of the extensive underground galleries." Bitiago village near Boromo, Burkina Faso.
