Clear acrylic medium super bee hive body for display and observation
Florida Plastics Projects
This was a special order, but I have experimented with this concept before.
The bees hate the light exposure, so, really an opaque cover is sort of necessary, for long term use.
Made to the same specs as a standard wood box, that is used as the "honey storage" part
of the Langstroth bee hive, that is the most popular size used by beekeepers in the USA.
This customer wanted to demonstrate his varroa mite treatment equipment.
There is a clear, rest on top, that is not pictured here. There are much better
observation hives out there, ready made, on the shelf, so to speak.
But this is just full hive version. 20" x 16.25" x 6.7" and using 3/4 thick acrylic sheet.
