Our goal was to create an easy to use bee venom collector; no external wiring, battery departments or power supplies, while at the same time being safest for the bees. A task which proved difficult, at first. The first bee venom collectors were developed in 1990-1991 and sold in 1992.
The first battery powered bee venom collectors were developed in 1992 and this is how they looked.
To the left - the bee venom collectors get more popularity and are introduced to bee keeping farms.
1992 - Later on, local bee keeping magazines post articles about the bee venom collectors. This here is a Bulgarian magazine called Beekeeping, year 1992 issue 4, advertising the bee venom collector.
And then later again, articles were published in 1993.
This here is issue 5, year 1993.
In 2006, our goal was to develop a bee venom collector that is microprocessor based, thus ensuring ease of use as well as higher level of protection for the bees.
The bee venom collector had extremely low power consumption - 2-3 months battery life, daily use; as well as multiple visual indications.
We created this device using all our current knowledge we have from our past projects. The microprocessor software of the new bee venom collector BVC0411 is completely new revision, the body of the device is re-worked and improved, the electronics are upgraded and the automatic functions are improved.
Introduced electronics improvements, changes to the microprocessor software, sturdier front wires, design adjustments ease of use.
