Observational Hives

The Bee-luminary observation hive is one of the most interesting and rewarding types of beehives to own and the best method to learn and enjoy honey bees. This Bee-luminary observation hive is designed to go with any mini hive and has see-thru sides so that the queen and all activities of the bees can be observed at any time you want. Honey bees are truly awesome to watch and this hive allows you to see the day-to-day activities within the hive without bothering or irritating the bees.   Also available in standard medium or deep sized frames.
