This Observation Hive is fully contained and can be brought inside as well as stay several days at an outside event. It lets children and adults alike get a rare glimpse into the daily routines and inner workings of a colony of Honey Bees. Education topics include life cycle of Queen, female worker Honey Bees, and the Drones which is a stinger less Male Bee. The jobs each bee performs throughout it's life time at appropriate age. How honey is made, including pollination of 1/3 of our food supply plus cotton, tobacco, and forests.
All of our products have either honey or other bee by-products in them, have a Honey Bee theme, or somehow related to the Honey Bee. Such as our Calendula & Honey soap. Bees forage on this flower and it grows in our pollinator garden.
Our fresh local eggs come from a Chicken Rescue that is also Hive Host and chickens help to control SHB (small hive beetle)which can overtake a hive. One of our Virginia Beach Satellite Apiaries is located at this Rescue.
