This is a 3dprinted device, which allows bees to build their hive in. It is so small that the bees will have to build the hive even on the outside of the device.
This allows us to cut down the honycombs on the outside without damaging the core of the hive and the bees can easily rebuild the combs. So we have kind of a symbiotic relationship. We provide a safe spot for the queen an her swarm and get delicious honey in return.
