It is undeniable that bees are experiencing a critical moment in their fight for survival. Help is needed on so many fronts and while some large scale changes (here’s looking at you Monsanto) need to happen, individuals can help bees survive and even thrive.
Although these hives are in their experimental stage they are a step in the right direction. I do hope they soon move into production. I am sure to acquire one: they are beautifully designed and cleverly practical in their simplicity.
I used to get large plastic bottles from stores around my area to transform them into bird feeders for my backyard. These beehives elevate the recycled plastic bottle further and that cannot be a bad thing.
