An invention of a member of the Cooperative, patented in the OBI (Industrial Property Organisation of Greece), that, for the first time in the world, makes the use of the honeycomb sheets redundant. Wiring, riveting, straightening and placing of the honeycomb sheets: all these time-consuming procedures belong to the past.
The honeycomb frame is scraped with a special device and only the base remains (that is, the honeycomb sheet) on which the bees build much better (especially in the spring) because this is much warmer that the honeycomb sheet we use and moreover it bears the scent of the bee swarm.
