In my country bees are put in specially carved wooden boxes with openings at the front so that the bees can go out, find their nectar and go back in the hive and create honey. The hives are usually placed in forests and wooded areas, where bees will be no threat for humans. In this case, the traditional method has been dropped and an observational fully functioning bee hive was created for people to hang it up on their walls. Beecosystem has come up with this innovative creation, which with the addition of bees and honeycomb will weight a total of 20-30 pounds.
Until now, the existing observational bee hives were too big to fit in a house. This is the first time that a hive so small is being created, giving people the chance to get to know exactly how bees create their honey.
How it works
The modular expansion works using the company’s unique vent-to-passageway magnetic connection points.
The wooden structure has ventilation on its four sides and an extension can be put for a more spacious experience.
Indoors and outdoors
The observational hive can be placed both indoors and outdoors. If placed indoors, a long tube is put out a window, so that bees can go out and come back whenever they want.
Every hive measures 53,34 cm in length, 45,72 cm in height and 15,24 cm to depth.
For indoors placement, the company introduces an auto-closure mechanism with safety closure hinges, a feature that no other observational hive has.
The bee hive comes with a cleaning drawer placed under the hive, so that you can clean the beeswax without worrying about littering your carpet.
They redesigned the observation hive viewing cover using a plexiglass that filters through only red colored light. This means that our artificial night lights will not confuse the bees that it’s daytime and they will continue their natural cycle.
If this observational hive is charming for you, you should know that the placement should be a maximum of 10 cm from a window, so that the pipe can be attached. For outdoor placement, the only thing you should be careful about is to place the hive somewhere that bad weather phenomena won’t touch.
