It was an interesting program. Gave a lot of insight into the young inventor and his life.
I'm anti plastic so that is a downside. On the other hand, this is early days with the invention and no doubt this young man will make some improvements over time.
Harvesting honey is a messy long winded process with the death of at least some bees unavoidable. Getting dressed up in all that protective garb on a hot day isn't fun. If this inventor can improve things for the bees and the beekeepers then it's all good news to me.
There is the concern that owners can think that is all there is to keeping bees of course and create a disease problem (as mentioned on the show). Time will tell.
Interesting insights and backgrounds.
Comment by 'natural' beekeeper about the amount of plastic in the hive.
As I see it, neither top-bar and derivatives nor the Flow Hive are commercial propositions. Otoh, there are a great number of amateur beekeepers world wide so a ready market for either or both types of hives.
Thanks Elaine. I've set myself a reminder.
Follow-up to the earlier posts on BLF about the 'self-emptying honey frame'.
