Certainly alternative!
Presumably when someone works out how to put supers on it they'll have to be re-named slopers?

actually, I thought it was a home for modernist solitary bees....not sure about the 118 118 stripes, I guess it would work as a bait hive. Maybe I'll get one.


is that the 'more bl**dy money than sense' people I hear approaching ???

LOL

I think that if sun shines onto that cottage, bees will boil to death there, or before that wax melts. That opening will not help in ventilation.

Singapore is a home area of Asian bee A.cerana. They prefer to live in open air.

Here it is said: There is not a single honey bee farm or beekeeping activity in Singapore, and needless to say, no local beekeeping associations where beekeepers share information with the public.

the website said:
The designer of this project, Adam Weaver, attacks the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) problem head-on with this stylish box.
Oh good - a quick makeover and that's the problem sorted. I always thought it was down to the poor aesthetic of faded timber and too much outmoded Bauhaus design ethos, glad I wasn't the only one.

What next? Anti-cancer handbags? Democracy shoes? Religious tolerance waistcoats? :p
