Bees normally build their own hives where honey is harvested, but these bees were given a castle built just for them. There are several creative Lego builders who have set out to make functional beehives from Legos.

The first functional Lego beehive was created in 2016. As you can see, the video above shows how these two men created it. Towards the end of the video, you can see how they plan to harvest the honey from the bees.

This video shows how to make a Lego beehive. This hive includes 9 removable brood frames. Each frame is used by the bees and will be removed to harvest honey.

Beehive made from Legos is home to thousands of bees

A beekeeper built a fully functioning hive with Legos over the course of eight weeks—and created a home for 30,000 bees.

In this video, you can see the extra detail to creating a fun, functional beehive.

As a result of his creativity, O Leocháin, says that he is now being asked for instructions on how to build a Lego beehive, but doesn’t have instructions yet. This fun beehive, built over the course of eight weeks, is currently home to thousands of bees.

When asked about how he has secured the Lego’s, he reports that he has not glued any of the Legos together as bees normally will seal it up themselves.

Interestingly enough, the process of gluing their home together is simple. Bees use propolis, a type of glue they get from trees to seal all openings.

These are awesome, right?
