Basically walking bees over a glass type plate that has an electric charge running through it. the charge stimulates them to sting the plate, leaving venom behind which is then dried and scraped from the plate.

 

never done it, no idea about quantities, etc.

A million stings to the gramme if I remember rightly. Depending on your definition of 'small', no, it can't be small scale.

There are various designs, I have seen a glass plate with a grid of fine wires 3-4mm above it to carry the charge. Do it a million miles away from habitation - the bees (all of them) can get quite nasty I'm told.

we ran one for a bit right in front of the workshop. they didn't get nasty at all.

we where trailing one for a while and would set it up and let it run while we worked the site.

boss pulled out of it due to the hassle of it all.
