Beehive air therapy?
« on: March 02, 2014, 03:27:17 PM »
I was paging through my beekeepers news mag when I had to look twice at a small advert for a device that is placed on top of a beehive with a hose that you then strap to your nose so you can sit an breath the air coming from the hive. Has anyone heard of anything like this and what do you think of it?

Yeap, I can see trying that.  The bees would find the hole, and up your nose they would go.  :-D

I did a bit of research on this and found this web site: http://www.zelinc.com/?lng=eng&vie=cnt&gr1=pon&gr2=apit
The device is a rather complicated setup with fan and face mask that fits on top of the hive (no bees get into the device at all) looks like a nice way to make money off desperate, sick, people looking for relief from lung issues...

and then again, there just may be something to it.

I'm surprised how many skeptics we have here. If you can smell it, you are taking it in, that's a fact..... And not taking any side here, (yet anyway) I for one know much many good things come from a hive. I also know that many people get benefit from aroma therapy, so I say, give it a chance at least.

   I've heard of it and am keeping an open mind about it.   However, bees also have diseases, some of which can be identified by their smell, ie. American foulbrood.   AF will cause an odor strong enough to be noticeable at the entrance to the experienced and observant beekeeper.    With this new method of inhaling beehive air, one wonders if the beekeeper could also infect himself with some pathogen that otherwise would be avoided.   Bees fly thousand of miles to many locales that we normally don't visit thoroughly enough to get their dangerous pathogens.....   Still needs considerable study in my opinion.   OMTCW

Kind of sounds like the schemes that I get in the mail every day, you know the ones that you never want to think about answering.

Satch, keep your bees off the beans.    We are already eating the bee spit.  That's how honey is made.
