The beehive has remained nearly unchanged in 100 years. With the plight of the bees becoming a major concern we have developed a hive that aims to bring beekeeping to the masses. Waste pallets create the structure that is lined with wood fibre insulation to reduce the impact of the cold winter months on bee numbers. Working in collaboration with a technology company it has integrated scales, thermometer and humidity sensing equipment linked to the internet to check and monitor the hive remotely. Over 50 hives have been distributed across the country aiming to make the life for both bee and beekeeper easier.
