Natural Beekeeping - American Made - Honey Bee - Eco Bee Box
A simple method for raising bees & producing honey. No mechanical parts, no costly extracting equipment. Affordable & elegant.
Backyard Urban Beekeeping Made Simple
A good friend once told me “if you are going to build beehives, be the best, not second best, not down the list, be number one”. This has been Eco Bee Box’s focus since it’s inception in 2011. The goal …to design a strong durable hive that is easy to use, is environmentally friendly, repairable, sustainable, and is a healthy environment for honeybees. After exhaustingly trying 100s of ideas it hit me one day on a long road trip, the idea came. A unique corner anyone could use. This led to unique designs in beehives, that are world class and beautiful. A perfect urban beehive for any yard, and any level of experience.
This is an American developed system that aides the new or experienced beekeeper, in raising local queens...a vital step in becoming sustainable as a beekeeper.
Not only does this equipment look good, it helps produce more revenue by lowering repair costs, and completely removes the costly messy extraction process. Now 100% natural comb honey directly from the bees with no middle process that contaminates and devalues your honey. Sell your honey without processing, while it is still in the comb.
Mini Urban Beehives are perfect for beginning beekeepers, from young to old. The Mini can expand and grow into a 26 Frame Comb Box, and even further into a Bee Sanctuary the Horizontal Hive.
This system is simple, minimal costs, and virtually no upkeep, and so fun to be around that questions come in “how often can I open the hive up and look inside?”
Help Eco Bee Box further develop this system buy helping support the new clear honeycomb containers. A mini frame can be placed into this container right at the hive, and immediately it is ready for market.
· Storing and selling mini frames of natural comb honey prepared 100% by the bees
· This Container can be used by the consumer to separate honey from wax
· Smallest inexpensive mini observation hive possible, ideal for classrooms
· Can be used as an incubator for hatching queens naturally
· Ideal sharing frames of bees, eggs and larvae to beekeepers that need emergency resources
· A clean way to store finished frames of honey in the freezer to prevent damage & crystallization
· Can pour liquid honey into the container for sale instead of plastic bottles
· Great display case show-casing the perfect frame
· A simple way to contain a potential diseased frame for transportation and inspection.
This container completes our system, from beginning to harvest.
In addition to the container, help is needed to publish the first in depth historical book on how bees migrated to the western Territory of Deseret (now Utah). I have spent considerable time researching and documenting this era and discovered many facts previously undocumented.
Some interesting facts include: Brigham Young was a beekeeper as early as 1851; first commercial importer of bees into Utah and also later exported to Idaho and Montana; details of the early bee being described as a black bee later Italian bees replaced them; the types of beehives viewed as best for beekeepers in 19th century; sale of swarms in 1860's selling for $13 each; first documented importing of queens from Pennsylvania; in 1871 18,000lbs of bees were brought to Utah via rail car; excerpts of a beekeeper's diary from 1870;l early names in beekeeping and problems that vexed them; symbolism of the hive and it's relationship to a community; facts about how bees came to the west and by who; and so much more.
The publishing of this historic book is too high to cover alone.
