Apparently, this is what happens when you forget to put the frames in a beehive, and the bees get to build how they feel, via Naked Capitalism:


The bees know how to keep humans from harvesting. Interesting pattern they make

@GuerillaOntologist Yes the bees like curly q shapes for comb to help regulate temps in various areas.

@GuerillaOntologist that’s beautiful. Also very likely optimal air flow or heating properties. Insects and amazing like that!

@GuerillaOntologist beautiful... i found one like that in an abandoned house.. ill post some pics this dayzz :blobaww:

@GuerillaOntologist bees being bees. I think it is pretty. They will also do that if you don't have an inner cover and violate "bee space" between the cover and the top of the frames. <3/8" they fill it with propolis >3/8" they fill it with comb. :)

@GuerillaOntologist capitalism prevents bees from doing art

let bees do art you monsters

@GuerillaOntologist I can confirm. In permapicolture, giving building autonomy to the bees for their nest is a cornerstone of the practice. @bradypus_tridactylus

@GuerillaOntologist Wow! It looks beautiful. I had no idea bees do this.
