An OBSERVATION BEE HIVE from Bonterra bees offers you a fascinating window into a feral colony of honey bees that live in the hollow of a tree. YOU have the unique pleasure and incredible privilege of watching, anytime, this truly marvelous creature and the selfless organism of its colony, doing its thing.
Bees have been around for millions of years and in their natural, or feral, state are indispensable as the keystone pollinators for our world. I am inclined to say, "Bees are more important to this world than I am".
I've had bees since I was a kid and it has been without a doubt, extremely rewarding. I have learned a great deal from bees; I doubt they've learned any thing from me. I have always been fascinated and entertained by the miraculous things they do and accomplish, and find it impossible not to be "anthro-bee-morphic" - naming a queen and seeing her personality, or watching the emergence of a new little girl worker as she crawls out of her cell, rubs her eyes and begins her life of many responsibilities to the colony. She'll nurse more young, attend the queen, build cells, make honey and royal jelly, fan the hive. Eventually she'll leave the hive to forage the countryside and tirelessly bring back nectar and pollen. And those lazy Drones, what a life....until!
The experience of watching your own bees in YOUR own observation hive will be just as remarkable and enlightening and impossible to describe or compare.
