With this revolutionary new hive it is possible to harvest honey without disturbing the bees. This does not annoy the bees, as well as, not put the beekeeper in danger. We explain to you this hive like no other. 

Stuart and Cedar Anderson, a father and his son are two Australian beekeepers that have this new type of hive over the years. Dubbed as Flow, this hive revolutionizes both their work but also the life of bees they raise. The unique feature of this hive is that it allows the honey to be harvested “automatically” without the beekeeper opening the hive and without disturbing the bees. You only need to use the tap at the bottom. If you also want to support the development of this hive by  Andersons, you can make a donation via  their website .

In general, honey harvesting is a very difficult step for beekeepers to manage. You need to remove the frame or frames in the hive where the bees have built their cells and stored honey, after having “fallen asleep” through smoking. The beekeeper can then place the honeycomb cells in a centrifuge to separate the wax and especially honey. Of Course, this also causes great inconvenience to the bees and high stress can trigger aggression from bees especially when you are stealing their food reserve. Knowing that bees can be particularly dangerous animals, and their number are decreasing worldwide due to multiple factors including stress. This new procedure will solve many of these problems.

So how does this miracle hive work? Its bottom is covered with artificial cells on which bees build their own beautiful hexagonal cells to be filled with wax before filling honey. But the bottom of the artificial lattice cells is removable. By opening the tap, the bottom can be removed and honey will flow naturally. While some honey will still be left to serve as food for the bees.

Really handy! We would love to be able to raise our honey ourselves as easily. Moreover it is recalled that  these little brave insects are essential to the functioning of our planet . Would you like to have such a hive next to a home to take advantage of honey collected so easily?
