There Had To Be A Better Way To Harvest Honey From Their Beehives, So They Came Up With This!

World First: Honey on tap directly from your beehive.

Inventors Stuart and Cedar Anderson knew there had to be a better way to harvest honey from their beehives so they came up with the “Beekeepers Dream”.  Their invention which took them a decade to develop, allows beekeepers to harvest honey straight from their beehives without opening it.  This means the bees stress less and it makes it much easier for the beekeeper.
Although they have not released any detail on how this system works, it surely looks promising. Below you will find some information that you will receive once you enter your email address on their website.
How do the Flow™ frames work?
The Flow frame consists of already partly formed honeycomb cells. The bees complete the comb with their wax, fill the cells with honey and cap the cells as usual. When you turn the tool, a bit like a tap, the cells split vertically inside the comb forming channels allowing the honey to flow down to a sealed trough at the base of the frame and out of the hive while the bees are practically undisturbed on the comb surface.
When the honey has finished draining you turn the tap again which resets the comb into the original position and allows the bees to chew the wax capping away, and fill it with honey again. The Flow frames are inserted into standard bee supers (boxes) in much the same way as standard frames, however the box itself is modified by cutting two access doorways in one end.
When the frames are inserted, the ends of the frames now form the end of the super. This allows access to the operating slots and honey pipe outlets.
