Cool New “Observation Hive”

My husband is so clever.  He was signed up to show our bees to a group of kids at church, so he threw together an observation hive and found a frame with a queen in it to show off.  It was a hit, and now we have the box ready for any time this request comes up again. (Previously we had to borrow one from friends, so now we are self-sufficient.)

Here it is, empty, with sponges to retain a little moisture.0813141158

Here it is with an empty frame.  Just imagine a frame full of bees, brood, honey, and a beautiful marked queen.0813141158a
