NEWS – If you care about the planet, you’ve probably heard that honey bees are having a very rough time and are dying by the millions due to pesticides and other factors. Bees not only pollinate pretty flowers, but they are a critical pollinator of the world’s fruit and vegetable crops. Fewer bees mean less food which at some point might mean less us. One way to combat this problem is for more people to raise honeybees on their property. BEEcosystem has gone one step further by offering DIY modular hives that actually go INSIDE your home!
Designed primarily for the educational benefit, BEEcosystem hives do not require that you cut a hole a wall to install them. Instead, they travel into the hive by way of a tube that installs in an existing window. I’m almost afraid to post this article for fear that Jeanne will see it. She’s talked about wanting start a beehive on our property (she’s an avid gardener), but even though these hives are built to be safe, there is no way in the world that I’d ever want one INSIDE my house. What about you? Interested? Visit beecosystem.buzz where you can buy them starting at $599 for one hive and up to $2599 for a set of 5 hives. Nope, Nope, Nope!
