I’m so happy I found this, it is exactly what I was looking for. I love that the bees and the water are in separate areas, the pad is a brilliant idea. I highly recommend this to anyone who is planning on storing their bees over winter. I bought one and then I bought the harvesting kit, which comes with one. I also plan on getting these as gifts for anyone that I can get to start up doing native bees.
