HOW TO COLLECT

Collecting bee venom has never been easier with our collector. On this page you will find how to properly collect bee venom using a Smart-Bee – Bee Venom Collector.

Connect the panels to the Smart-Bee device. Leave the connected panels at the entrance to the hive. Also connect the device to the power supply, and then turn on the collector. The device will start sending impulses to the connected panels. The bees respond to the electrical impulses produced in the collector and begin stabbing the glass under the impulse wires. In this way, they start releasing the venom to the glass in liquid state. The venom on the glass dries quickly. It is removed by scratching and stored in a glass jar in powder form. The well-closed jar is then placed in the freezer at -15 ° C. This way it can be stored for at least 5 years, retaining its healing effect.

Bee venom can be collected from early April to late September. The best results are obtained when a collector is used on the hives for about 40-45 minutes, and then this hives has about 60 minutes rest. You can use the collecting panels to another hives during “rest” time. You can repeat the procedure on the same hives after 2-3 days break.

Based on experience so far, the expected yield of bee venom per hive over a period of 45 minutes would be 0.04-0.6 grams depending on the health and strength of the hive, outdoor temperature and season.

It is important to note that the mild impulses produced by the device are strictly controlled so that the device is harmless to the bees.

ABOUT BEE VENOM

Bee venom

Honey bee venom (apitoxin) is a colorless, acidic liquid and contains pharmacologically important constituents. The important constituents present in bee venom are melittin, apamin, hyaluronidase, phospholipase and histamine. Melittin is considered to be the major constituent of bee venom. The venom is produced in the abdomen of worker bees from a mixture of acidic and basic secretions. New born bees do not sting. Venom synthesis begins after two or three days, while the maximal production rate is reached when bees are two to three weeks old. Older worker bees produce less venom. When collecting the bees leave it in a liquid state on the collecting panel. It’s a colorless, acidic liquid. After drying, it is a white powder (if protected from oxidation) . If it is not protected, oxidation will change the color from white to brownish-yellow. Changes caused by oxidation of certain components of the venom may decrease its healing effect.
As a branch of apitherapy bee venom therapy is used by some as a treatment for rheumatism and joint diseases due to its anticoagulant and anti-inflammatory properties. The bee venom is used for the treatment of rheumatic diseases, multiple sclerosis, rheumatic fever, high blood pressure, sciatica, psoriasis, hematomas, various skin conditions, and burns, among other. New research shows that nanoparticles carrying a toxin found in bee venom are capable of destroying HIV cells while leaving others intact. It is also increasingly used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries in the form of creams and serums. Bee venom (apitoxin) is produced in many countries mainly in Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and Americas, and is the most expensive bee product.

ABOUT DEVICE

SMART-BEE is a device used to collect valuable bee venom (apitoxin) and it consists of two main parts – the device and the panels. The main characteristics of our collectors are: automatic operation, low energy consumption, power from various portable sources, the ability to serve several panels at a time, which significantly reduces the time required to collect.

Collecting bee venom using our devices is very easy. You can use it as a beginner or a professional, as it does not require any adjustment with excellent results tested in practice. Depending on your needs, you can choose a model and start collecting bee venom.

Smart-Bee venom collector is bee friendly, and the collection process is harmless to them. A bee that stings into a soft surface (e.g. the skin) cannot pull its stinger out. Attempts to do so result in severe injuries to the bee and ultimately its death. However, when the bee stings into a hard surface (in our case glass in the collecting panel), the stinger doesn’t get caught and the bee won’t get hurt as it can pull it out easily.
