Beekeeping is perhaps one of the most conservative types of human activity, where the technology of extracting honey from the hive has remained practically unchanged since the times of Ancient Egypt. This is a very painstaking, hard work that requires certain skills and care, because bees can bite.
In general terms, the technology for extracting honey looks like this. First, frames with honeycombs are removed from the hives. In this case, the bees must be driven away with the help of smoke and calm them down. After that, the frames are placed in a special device, where the honey is released and cleaned. Australian beekeepers Cedar Andersen and his father Stewart have proposed a completely new, truly revolutionary technology for producing honey.
They seemed to have cracked the honeycomb, which, as you know, has the shape of an ideal hexagon. The artificial honeycombs they create can transform as they fill. To do this, you need to insert a special handle into the hole in the upper part of the hive, turn it, after which one half of the honeycomb moves vertically relative to the other and the honey flows out through special tubes into the container prepared for this.
A presumably unique six-thread tubing set will cost $ 600.
