Urban Beekeeping Is About to Get a Lot Easier

If you’ve ever tried your hand at beekeeping, you know how hard it can be to actually get the honey out of the hive. There’s a lot of time and gear involved.

But things are about to get a whole lot easier.

A father and son team in Australia have developed the Flow Hive, the first hive that allows beekeepers to collect honey by just opening a spout, which releases the honey into collection jars.

The details on exactly how the hive works have yet to be released, but we imagine that if the new Flow Hive takes off, there could be a lot more backyard beekeepers around, which could be good news for that once-threatened species.
