The Honey Pot

Folks I have this posted on a(Restricted Forum) , and i though since most are just coming out of hibernation , it might be a good read . I haven't done / purchased anything as of yet , But I would like to do bees as well .

Here's a copy of their patent application.  Basically, the cells of the comb are broken up in to vertical strips so that they can be moved up and down relative to each other and grind the honey cells.

Re: The Honey Pot

I've seen this several times, people keep sending it to me.  I have a few concerns. 
1. it may discourage people from opening up their hives for inspection
2. during harvest time, it could encourage wild bee and wasp colonies to rob the hive
3. I don't think that that the only time it would work would be the very hot days of summer (at least in this part of Ontario)
4. how would you know when to turn off the flow, you don't want to take all the honey from the bees

It is a cool idea and I'm sure they have though of everything and if not, it will be worked out in the first few years.  This is something I will continue to watch.

My husband (the bee keeper of the two of us, I am a bit Leary of stinging insects :shock:) had many of the same comments as you when he saw the design MGF.  It sure looks neat though!

Re: The Honey Pot

I have thoughts of doubt also , not from experience , but of the cost & marketing . It just seems too good .Plus you won't see a thing till 2015 .

Kinda like a box building that you get to trade stuff for ,paper fiats for meat, them chickens are so much easier than all the work we go through. 

There is a bee keeper that i have spoken with a few times at the fair & shows . We have always purchased his products in bulk . I would like to get his impression also .
