The Honey Ghetto

Monday, January 30th, 2012

  • I’ve been seeing these boxes all over the New Zealand countryside. They’re beehives and standing up close to some today as I near the top of the south island, I could smell the bees wax and hear the machine like hum of the hives as I watched bees come and go.

    I wonder, are these high rise beehives consider the ghetto hives of the bee world? Is this low cost housing too a bee, complete with all the associated problems of vandalism and anti-sococial behavior?
