The principal idea of this develops venom collector relays on the old version of Benton design which comprised of a woody board equipped with metal wires to make it a friendly user and more affordable. The electric signals with high frequency disturb the guard bees and attempts them to attack the glass mounted to the board and produce the venom. The conducting wires arranged parallel and suspended on the board with 6mm of scape between them. The lines of wires are alternatively connected and attached to a power supply of a15-27 voltage batteries. Between each couple parallel lines of the wires there is glass surface framed with clear plastic strip to deposit venom and keep it clean. Turning on the nub produces series of electric pluses with high frequency transmitted through the wires. As a result, the guard bees are stimulated to produce the venom as part of their wild response to dangerous and suspected activities. Electronic remote software, Arduino nodemcu esp 8266, is adapted and remotely connected to the system power supply to enable remote control and choose the preferable time to harvest venom based on the temperature and humidity conditions. The software can be instilled on the PC or the phone which makes it more convenient to users.
