European Automated Bee Brush
« on: December 05, 2011, 06:01:31 PM »
Recently, i was perusing the topics on Bee Houses and ran across a video of a Beekeeper who was extracting honey from the hives in his bee house.  He used two rotating cylindrical brushes to remove the bees from each individual frame.  The bees fell into a chamber underneath which the beekeeper then shook into a bucket that was used to empty them back into the hive.

I lost track of that Video and would be very interested if anyone has come across it or has any information on the rotating brush gizmo that he was using.

Yeah I remember that! Saturday mornings.... Mr Gadget!  An automated bee brush! Really??? Mankind never ceases to amaze me! Now if they can just come up with a cheap and efficient way to store solar energy.  Sorry didn't mean to sound condescending.

As sad as it is... being the absolute gadget freak that I am, I would buy it!  :-D
We have designed our civilization based on science and technology and at the same time arranged things so that almost no one understands anything at all about science and technology. This is a clear prescription for disaster.
