These hives are designed for use in your
living room, den, or wherever you choose. The wood is beautifully finished
furniture quality. All of our observation hives are made with safety
that will meet all insurance needs for public viewing. They are 45" tall, 30" wide, and turn 360 degrees for maximum
viewing pleasure. The base, which remains stationary, has a tunnel
attached which goes to the outside of the building for the bee’s entrance
and exit. To work the bees, a sliding trap door closes the entrance; then
the whole top part of the hive is lifted off and carried outside for
manipulation. The style of the hives that we have in stock may vary from
the pictures below. The observation hives that we have in stock are listed
below, if you would like to see an individual picture
of the hive you are interested in feel free to
email us and I will send you a
picture of that hive. We can also custom build a observation hive to your
specifications, just email or call us with your ideas.

Mahogany Observation Hive
| This observation hive is designed to be used
outside, but we still recommend that a small roof be built over it. It does
not rotate like our other observation hives, because there is no need to
move the hive to work on it, plus it also makes the hive more stable for
outside conditions. Both sides have key locked doors, that close over the
glass, protecting the bees from direct sunlight and bad weather. Like our
other observation hives, it comes installed with safety glass, sliding trap
door that closes the entrance and a built in sugar syrup feeder. To help it
survive for decades, we have used pure Mahogany wood and applied 2 coats of
marine varnish to finish it off.
