Honey on Tap Directly From Your Beehive (VIDEO)
My husband and I used to have bees, and it was great fun, except when it came time to collect that precious honey from those hard working little creatures. Well now you don't have to worry about all the hassle of removing each frame to scrape off that delicious honey, you can have honey on tap directly from your beehive instead! This is probably one of the most ingenious beekeeping tricks I have seen to date. While beekeeping has come a long way in recent years, I'm always impressed by all the new ways people find to make life easier.
Usually when you're beekeeping, in order to collect the honey, you go out full-suited and armed with a smoking device which kind of puts the bees in a daze so that they're not aggressive. Then you have a few minutes of time before they regain their senses and realize what you're doing. These little creatures are incredibly sensitive and protective of their golden treasure. That's why it's important that they don't notice you as a threat, because then you'll be running for your life with thousands of bees aiming to kill.
Most seasoned beekeepers are aware enough that they seldom get into trouble. They can swiftly get in and out without being noticed. But it still takes a certain amount of skill, courage, and timing. The trouble is when you're new to beekeeping and you have all these things to learn, the risk may seem high. The worst thing you can do is to feel afraid, because the bees are so sensitive, they will know right away that you're scared and this is threatening which means... they might attack.
All this to say that this invention to have honey on tap directly from your beehive is revolutionary. If you want to get into beekeeping but you've been too afraid, this is the perfect opportunity to minimize your risk. And if you're already a seasoned pro, you might still consider getting these handy contraptions so that you can make your life that much easier.
