It's Possible To Make Functional DIY Beehives From Lego Bricks

Did you know that people are doing amazing things to save bees? There are ordinary folks building beehives to help strengthen the bee population.

But have you ever heard of somebody making a beehive out of Lego bricks? Yes, you read that right. Folks are using Legos to create incredible and fully functional beehives, and you absolutely need to see them for yourself.

Apparently, the idea to build a fully functional beehive out of Legos originated back in 2016.

An Israeli beekeeper Dvorat Hatavor and his partner built it over the span of eight weeks. And I think it's truly a beautiful masterpiece.

So how did these men do it?

Well, it all starts with building the base of the hive. Then the tedious work of putting all the Legos together starts, ha, ha! I don't know how they had the patience to work on it for eight weeks.

Once they finished the whole beehive, they assembled the roof separately.

Wow, that's absolutely amazing. I bet the bees loved their new home. Typically, bees build their own beehives, but this one saved them some work, ha, ha! Those bees are busy enough making all that honey, no?

You can see a quick video of the building process here.

I think it's so creative and fun. However, just so you know, a beehive like this will require close to seven thousand Legos. OMG! That can be a very expensive endeavor.

Since the creation of this very first Lego beehive, other people started making their own.

I have to give them credit for taking on something as time-consuming as this type of project. Although, I think the bees are worth it.

Here's a bit of info you might want to know.

You don't need to glue the beehive together at all. The bees will seal it all up themselves. They actually use a substance called 'Propolis' which they produce by gathering parts of plants, buds, and exudates. It's like a natural glue they use to seal their beehives.
