    Default livestream of beehive in a tree

    Hi

    we built 2 live cams into a beehive in a tree that we all see them building a natural shaped hive.

    you can watch the livestreams here:

    let me know what you think.

    Very interesting. I note that the comb near the light source is empty. Is that typical in your experience?

    It is a new part of the comb

    two weeks ago the comb had not reached that area yet.

    Still you wont really see closed combs as the angle of the camera will only show you the end of the combs and the bees fill them from the inside to the outside

    it is a infrared light you usually would use for survailance

    the light is invisible for the bees as well as humans.

    kind of tricky with the installation cause you will see the light only through the camera
