New premium class beehive
Totally new year-round observation beehive. Up to 6 modules, 1 feeder and rotation 360 deg. Contactless to the bees (you don’t need to be exposed on bee attack, all manipulations with the hive are contactless to insects and extremely easy to menage) . Nylon – Wood – metal construction & 3D printed elements. Small frame 12,5X12,5 cm and extremely small number of individuals in colony – but still fully functional. Easy to assemble & menage even for beginners. To handle it you don’t need any external help.
All in a home environment, watch whenever you want.
Lowered volume, narrow-tall shape & good ventilation system for better bee colony overwintering. For advanced bee keepers: especially valuable breeding bee queens can be under constant supervision even in the middle of winter. Low drone production rate and smaller comb cells reduce Varroa mite infestation to ZERO in relatively short time of a few bees generations.
Welcome to WindowBee™
The WindowBee™ channel was created to spread the cultivation of bees in the cities in observational beehives or in traditional way.
Currently cities are the mainly places where the bees do not suffer from deadly environmental changes. Chemical pesticides and monocultures introduced in the country sides weakened immune system of bees. This is main reason of CCD.
Colony Collapse Disorder is a serious threat to honeybees. These insects will die without the help of the cities if degradation of environment will accelerate. Honey bees extinction will bring hunger across the planet. Bees indirectly -through pollination and participation in food chains produce more than 30% of our food. Without them, we will become threatened and all planet ecosystem.
A short story and problem discussion about the bee crisis and CCD syndrome. Since 1945 more than 75% bee population has disappeared… Bees are dying so are we…

Ten things we should think about before we decide to be the beekeepers. Naturally it is much easier to use Windowbee™ hives…
Bees are critical to agricultural production, but beekeeping is actually increasing in cities like Los Angeles and New York City, where restrictions on the practice were recently lifted. In Philadelphia, where there are thousands of abandoned lots to forage, both hobbyists and commercial beekeepers are introducing hives to their backyards, roofs and gardens. Hari Sreenivasan has the story.
To celebrate the release of the Cities episode of Planet Earth II, Maddie Moate went down to East London to meet the beekeeper Chris from Barnes & Webb who manages a selection of beehives across the city. Maddie finds out how bees find food in urban environments and how, through the waggle dance, they are able to communicate with their fellow bees, where food can be found.
