A bee brush, unlike hearth brushes or floor brushes, generally only have one row of bristles.  It is designed to move the bees off the comb without entangling them or to be too rough on either the bees or the honey comb. 

This brush has long nylon bristles that give it a softness a short bristle wouldn't have, but also has a higher density of bristles than the lower priced nylon bristle brush.  The length of a synthetic bristle is particularly important to ensure plenty of flex but still make it stiff enough to move the bees.  The higher density helps catch more bees with each sweep, saving time.  And time saved reduces the time the hive is open and so minimises the aggravation of the occupants.
