Your eye spies are working fine… It’s a counterfeit hive.

Thats the one that has been around on aliexpress for awhile https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-Design-Honey-flow-automatic-beehive-honey-free-flow-beehive/32687304060.html.

on ebay a few months ago an Australian based bee equipment seller sold several of these hives- exactly the same- for $395 each. I have a feeling they imported some to see if they could get away with passing them off as genuine- ran into trouble- and then liquidated them at a low price.

here is one from Germany- and you only have to pay $724 dollars for postage!
