6.40MM / Beehive

6.40MM
6.40MM

When a wasp attacks on bee colony, more than several hundred of honey bees killed by this single hunter. Furthermore, entire colony would be totally destroyed when it happened because they are hunting as a group. These invaders fix their eyes on honey and eggs, and honey bees oppose the enemies. A colony can have up to 60,000 workers; however, this entire family also can be killed one time. This is very serious damage for beekeepers now. The new beehive we designed is totally similar to the others in first glance; however, we chose very simple way to solve the problem, changing the hole.
