How long can you keep bees in an observation hive? I guess it would depend on the design.
Yep, http://www.brushymountainbeefarm.com/Ul ... info/U501/ I've got one of these and it works very well for teaching. I also have a wall mounted frame deep in my office for me. http://s196.photobucket.com/albums/aa19 ... on%20Hive/brendantm130 said:If it wasn't a closed hive? Sized like a nuc?
Indeed that's the one you made. I ended up adding a few things, beefing up the door hinges (the glass was too heavy), had to widen the grooves for the glass as they were 1/32 wider than the channels cut (my mis-measurement), enlarged the exit/entrance, added lift handles, added the glass covers, added an autoclose entrance/exit, and making the whole hinge system was more of a challenge than I initially thought. I've enjoyed it quite a bit and it was well worth the price.DOrr said:
