Bee Venom is continually released by the bees in the hive to build collective bee hive immunity.
Bees do not need to be stressed to release venom it’s a naturally released process for hive health as the Bee’s groom themselves with venom peptides that they then place around the hive as an antiseptic.
Patented bee venom collection equipment uses very specific square wave pulsing technology.
Hives that have regular stimulation have increased outputs of Venom increasing hive health.
Dr Nikolai Nikolaev of API Health NZ has a PhD in biology science (biophysics) and a masters degree in electronics and has invented and patented a safe modernized collection technology for collection of honey bee venom that doesn’t harm the bees.
The device consists of a glass sheet that is put onto the beehive.
The glass sheet pulses with a very specific unipolar square wave of 40-70 microseconds with pulse separation intervals of 3-50 milliseconds, this technology has been specifically developed for the New Zealand Bee temperament as bee’s world wide have different natures and handling needs.
When the current is pulsed on, bees that are on the sheet automatically stick out their stingers, and the action of the muscles pushing the stinger also pumps a small amount of venom out the end of the sting. This venom sticks on the glass where it is collected and purified for storage.
