Tips and facts about the bee venom collector

  • Using one bee venom collector, you can collect bee venom from up to 3-5 hives
  • Best results are achieved if after 45 minutes of harvest, each hive is given 1-2 hours to recuperate
  • It is best for the bees if venom is harvested not more than 4 days a week, up to 6
  • If you plan on collecting bee venom for 3 to 4 consecutive months, you should switch to 3-4 days per week, keeping bees healthy
  • During active season, one bee family can provide between 0,26 and 0,78 grams venom per day
  • Depending on bee venom's quality and purity, prices vary from 10 to 150 USD per gram
  • It takes about 50 minutes to finish collecting bee venom from one hive per session, after the venom is scraped off the glass you can use it on a different hive right away

Is the device harmless to your bees?

The BVC 5.0 device has series of built-in protections and indications, making it easily usable and safe for bees.

To protect bees, in a humid weather the device automatically reduces the current or even shuts itself down for about 30 seconds, to prevent unwanted damage to the bees. After 30 seconds, it runs a humidity check again and attempts to resume work. Additional protection is provided by another automatic feature – if there are too many bees on the device, it shuts down until everything is back to normal.

How efficient is the device?

During the active season, one bee family can provide from 0,26 to 0,78 gram venom per day. One device can be used on up to 2-3 hives a day.

When farming bee venom, the greatest difference is the device used – according to science researches, bees’ life is significantly increased with optimal electro-stimulation parameters of the device. According to another research – conditions of short-term systematic electro-stimulation may lead to a stronger bee family – the queen lays eggs more intensively.

How to test if everything's working properly?

Turn the device on, the green LED should be blinking slowly. Short circuit 2 or more adjacent front wires with a metal object. If the red LED is solid, the device is working properly.
