This Company Builds Hives You Can Install In Your Living Room

By Aimee Lutkin

Beehives have been in decline over the last fifty years, with massive die-offs in the last decade. Organic farmers have been working to support bee health in myriad ways, but more innovative solutions are needed. Inhabitat reports that a company called Beecosystem is encouraging every day citizens to take the pollination chain into their own hands.

The Beecosystem was created by Dustin Betz and Mike Zaengle, who designed a modular beehive that can be installed pretty much anywhere, and they're encouraging people to install them right on the walls of their own homes. The interlocking pieces connect to a tube, allowing bees to enter and exit if you choose to watch them grow from your couch, but the hives can also be installed on the outside of your house.
