SUNDAY IS AMAZING IDEA DAY! Beekeepers have figured out a way to put a TAP onto a hive – and just turn it when the honey is ready! No mess, no fuss – pure, fresh honey. Amazing.






I know just about nothing regarding bee keeping.

However, we all learned in school that in order to get the honey, you had to destroy the hive.

Seemed sad and messy… there had to be a better way.

Well, leave it to a Father/Son Aussie Team to crack the code of beekeeping!

These two figured out a way to make the panels of the hive disjoint when the honey was ready to harvest.  In this way, the honeycombs were broken and the honey would drain out – into a spigot – and then funnel into your jar.

The bees don’t lose their hives (and their comfort) and the beekeeper has a much easier job of harvesting honey.  No suit, no mess, no fuss.

Outstanding!

Now honey can pour directly out of the hive - instead of destroying the hive to harvest the honey.

HOW DOES IT WORK?!

These two men have patented a honeycomb frame that goes into the beehive.  The bees fill the honeycombs with honey and seal off the tops, like they normally would.

But now, beekeepers with this system, can flip a crank to dislodge the honeycomb  alignment, that releases the pure honey which flows down a chute and into the spout for capture.

Amazing.

So, instead of breaking open hives, disturbing and upsetting the bees to then remove all the honeycomb, scrap off the bees, extract the honey, clean everything and then start over…  now it is just the flip of a crank.

They say with large operations, this can all be hydraulic so the beekeeper can flip one major switch and harvest all of his honey at once – easily.

Here are the flats of honeycomb in this new system, inside of the hive.

The pre-made combs look like this.

The bees go to work filling up the combs and sealing them off.

When the honey is ready, a switch adjusts the honeycomb so they release the honey.

They honey flows downward and out of the flowspout.

Just set a jar under the spout.

THEY RAISED THE MONEY THROUGH AN INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN!

This video was their Indiegogo campaign a few weeks ago (after 10 years of  trial and error to get their product just right).

The inventors wanted $70,000 to invest in manufacturing… but this was such a great idea, they raised over $8,000,000 in a very short time.

Amazing!
