Our last bee-friendly hive is born: we called it the “cob-cortiço”. Made of cork, cob and wood, this hive with thick breathable walls should strongly support the swarm to build up a strong and powerful core.

We added a “symbiotic floor”, an extra box below the hive body, where a symbiotic relationship can be established with micro-organisms.

The size of the box is wider than the hive body, so the idea is that the mites that fall down cannot walk back up and get decomposed in the organic layer.
