Artist Creates Indoor Hive Using Flow!

Here’s something you don’t see everyday…an Australian artist/furniture maker and owner of Pedulla Studios made a wall-mounted indoor observatory hive using Flow frames. The bees come and go via a PVC pipe drilled through to the exterior wall of the building. The project was commissioned by what I’m guessing is the company whose product is highlighted in the video on his website (see link below), Natural Life Propolis. Also below, a link to a 2017 Natural Life Propolis promotional video (not using Flow frames).

Oh wow, cool. Unless I missed it, it doesn’t look like he’s using Flow frames, pretty interesting just the same.

You’re right. No flow frames but that’s just a matter of drilling two holes in the side!

I think the top frame is a Flow Hive Super frame but of course the bottom two are for brood so are conventional frames. A nice looking job on making it but I’m not sure how the bees like lights being turned on and off, do the bees have a say on what they are watching on the TV. Bet the hive isn’t registered :wink:

That is going to take some pretty serious management for swarm prevention considering the limited space for the bees.

Looks cool though.

Cheers
