Observation and Teaching Hives

Members of the NRVBA may reserve the Association’s observation hive and/or the teaching hive. The observation hive is used to display live bees. You place two frames of your bees into the box and screw it shut.

The teaching hive is a normal deep with frames – each frame contains photos showing a typical sight: brood, bees with queen, drone brood, honey, wax moths etc.
