With this awesome invention by Stuart and Cedar Anderson, a father-and-son beekeeper in Australia, honey bees all over the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Their Flow Hive invention allows beekeepers to harvest honey from their hives without disturbing the bees.
The invention works by providing the bees with a partially-completed wall of honeycomb cells that they then complete with their very own wax. After they fill these cells with honey and cap them with wax, the beekeeper can open the opposite end, allowing the honey to drift out into a tap without ever disturbing the bees. The bees simply reopen the cells and fill them up once more.
Honey bees world wide are in trouble from something known as colony collapse disorder, and that is extremely worrisome because of the honey they produce and the agricultural plants they pollinate. Confidently, this hive will supply weakened hives a much-wanted break from intrusive visits from the bee keeper!
