Made without toxic glues or finishes, this little bee home is just what is needed for the successful keeping of smaller amounts of bees for BVT. It provides a great place for bees to live happily and contains a pseudo queen,which keeps the bees oriented to their residence and allows them to return to their tiny "hive" if they are let out. The pseudo queen also makes them more content. Beekeeping, whether in a small home like this or a large hive, requires TLC for the bees and kindness. The use of a mason jar doesn't appeal to many, including me, because I've observed them and they act disoriented in such a jar. This is the answer for those of us that are beginners or at any level of BVT, but care deeply about the precious bees on our planet. It's well worth the investment while doing therapy and is very humane. They love it!

Tiny Apiary with Wooden Back

The Tiny Apiary has a sliding plexiglass door, with a nice square hole in it, which accommodates the small crates that our bees are shipped to us in for stinging. The sliding door locks with an eyelet screw. On the side of the Tiny Apiary, there is a circular hole. This hole allows a patient or practitioner an alternative way to drop in the crate of bees, with plenty of room for it to lie down on the base of the Tiny Apiary. It can easily be retrieved with your hands, a pair of pliers, or even tweezers. Also, bees can be retrieved through this hole with a container or with a chopstick. The hole has a revolving plexiglass door and shuts with a eyelet screw.

On the top of the Tiny Apiary, there is a feeding hole, and a small glass container comes with this. There are four tiny holes in this container. Spice containers can also be obtained and will work on this bee home. You can put your honey in the container or just place honey with clean fingers on the metal mesh covering.

Tiny Apiary with Removable Back

The Tiny Apiary has a sliding plexiglass door, with a nice square hole in it, which accommodates the small crates that our bees are shipped to us in for stinging. The sliding door locks with an eyelet screw. On the side of the Tiny Apiary, there is a circular hole. This hole allows a patient or practitioner an alternative way to drop in the crate of bees, with plenty of room for it to lie down on the base of the Tiny Apiary. It can easily be retrieved with your hands, a pair of pliers, or even tweezers. Also, bees can be retrieved through this hole with a container or with a chopstick. The hole has a revolving plexiglass door and shuts with a eyelet screw. In the back is a removable plastic honeycomb for bees to climb on.

On the top of the Tiny Apiary, there is a feeding hole, and a small glass container comes with this. There are four tiny holes in this container. Spice containers can also be obtained and will work on this bee home. You can put your honey in the container or just place honey with clean fingers on the metal mesh covering this feeding hole. If necessary, this hole can be left uncovered for ventilation, but then you feed from the top.

The sliding door is nice, because you can push it in either direction and fully remove it for cleaning. With cleaning, use only a slightly dampened cloth. Cleansing with essential oils or strong soaps is not advised. It might cause the bees to die. You could use a drop or two of formaldehyde-free dish soap.

Finally, there will be four or five holes for ventilation, but tiny ones. Order today! I will be making these daily, but I will try to get them done asap when orders come in.
