A new way to collect honey

I just saw this video about a new kind of bee hive. It doesn't hurt the bees and cuts back on the chance of getting stung. Unfortunately I can't post the video here so here is a link to the video Byron Bay man's beehive invention turns him into a multi-millionaire - 9news.com.au .

This was invented by a person in Australia and I think it could possibly work here in the states. It is one of the most interesting ways of collecting honey I have ever seen.

I would really love to see how it does it but I suspect they are keeping that secret till they can get into production.

I can't say for certain how close to production they are but did see this originally on Facebook with a link to this video. Unfortunately this doesn't give as much detail as the Facebook post did as from what I understand the honey comb is made of some kind of plastic and not made by the bees. How they attract the bees is uncertain as while I watched that video I didn't listen to the sound on Facebook as I was doing other things at the time.

hopefully it works for the people that invested in it but just seems like its not really that great of an option given the cost at over 500 a super or over 400 for just the frames for one super not to mention just watched a video where filling one jar took 15 minutes its certainly not going to take the place of traditional extraction ever but maybe it will work for people with 1 hive that just want a few jars of honey it certainly will be costly for them.

That reminds me of this show I think it aired on the weather channel. I forgot what it was called but these guys created a honey extraction machine from a old washing machine since the factory made electric ones are costly to a small time honey farmer.
