Building and Operating an Observation Beehive
Author(s) W. L. Gojmerac, M. W. Allington
If you like to see nature work up close, build the clear plastic beehive described here. Install it in a window, and let the swarm entertain and instruct you. Includes plans for building the see-through beehive, information on how and when to install the bee colony in your hive (best when fruit trees and dandelions begin to bloom), instructions on how to care for and maintain the hive, and suggestions for experiments you can do with your bees (6 pages).
