Little can and bottle strainers that will protect your beverages from wasps, bees and other large insects! You may found them useful if you plan to spend some time outdoor during summer :)

This thing was not tested yet - please let me know if you have any comments!

More information about this project (in Polish):


Print without supports - if your printer is able to make short bridges, you shouldn't have any troubles with this thing.

Start with printing PlasticBottleBeeProtector.stl and check how it fits the plastic bottle neck. It needs to be printed very precisely, and probably it will be a bit too tight or too loose. Try to resize the STL model a bit, change printer flow rate or slicer extrusion multiplier by few percent.

Your link is not in English :) and what are the dimensions of it?

interesting and innovative... but remember, in most cases it is wasps and other insects trying to get something from out of the bottles. Bees just fly to flowers in blossom, they collect nectar from live plants to make our honey... please rename the can and bottle protectors?

Sure, thanks for comment! :)

I actually had a bee sting the roof of my mouth once because it flew into a can of soda and I took a sip. Where has this been all my life?

Wish I saw this a couple of weeks ago, before I drank that cockroach.

Oh geez, don't remind me. Those buggers get into everything if you let it idle long enough (like the coffee machine)

ah good, someone else has had that happen, i dont feel so alone now.

Very cool! It's hard to believe but I have literally been stung on the inside of my mouth twice swallowing a bee / wasp drinking a soft drink. Fortunately I'm not allergic.

Thanks :) I hope you will never have such accident in future. Two years ago I almost swallowed a bee what gets into a bottle - fortunately I spat it out.
