    Default My latest incredible invention - the BBWAB

    This invention might very well sweep my name onto the list of comparable figures in the beekeeping world of this era - Langstroth, Warre, Kelley, Adam, Dadant, Palmer, Bush, odfrank. And once again, like Emil Warre, I submit it to the beekeeping world without one straw of selfishness or self gain, no patent, no copyrights, no secrets. And not only that, I name it not after myself, but after my good friend Charlie Blevins, president of the San Francisco Beekeepers Club. A man who holds all non Langstroth topbar hives in disdain and ridicule. Presenting the:

    BLEVINS BUSHKILL WARRE ADAPTER BOX

    This box will allow an 8 frame Bushkill vac to be used to vac into Warre boxes. Here is a link to it's complete photo album:

    Just imagine what you could come up w/ had you more time on your hands. Actually, don't imagine. Ha!! How about a video so we can see and hear it in action. Looks almost Rube Goldbergian.

    I use a lot of warre hives. I used the basic idea of a Bushkills vacuum set, but Warre hive sized.. I believe you will be held up in history, not as a beekeeping great but right up there with Christ , The Buddha, Alexander the Great, and Napolean. Minions will hang on your every word. All hail!

    Your initial impressions were correct, odd is a perfect description.

    I'm thinking about buying this professional beevac for Ollie so he doesn't embarrass himself showing up to a cutout with the contraptions he's "invented".
