Like other endangered species, bees have been drastically decreasing in population over the last ten years. Some of the main reasons being modern farming methods, pesticide use, and endangered habitats. This is an extremely alarming issue that more people should be paying attention to. Why may you ask? Bees play a very important role in human’s lives by pollinating all the plants we cultivate for food.
With one of the main issues for the bee population decrease being not enough sufficient hive habitats, this new innovative solution, the BEEcosystem, has ingeniously resolved this problem. The system is made up of wall-mounted, hexagonal observation hives which one can easily expand into a honeycomb form, allowing you to host a real, living beehive directly in your living room!
The concept of bringing bees into a human’s space is not only good for the bees, giving them a clean, safe natural habitat to grow and populate, but also, it is helpful for us humans because we can increase our awareness of bees’ roles and how they serve an important purpose for our lives as well. Keeping safety in mind, the whole system is designed so that even a novice bee-keeper can use it with ease.
Keeping in mind that people may become slightly anxious when in close contact with bees, the BEEcosystem has created a safe, sealed structure where the bees remain enclosed in transparent hexagonal forms and enter and exit through a tube that can be fastened to your window. You can safely observe at a very close distance how the bees go about building up their colony, construct honeycombs and beeswax and work together as a team. You can even harvest the honey as a sweet reward for helping these little guys find a new home and giving back to the bee community.
