B-BOX: First ever beehive designed for home beekeeping​

Safe, simple, interactive. The game-changer of urban beekeeping.

It’s autumn time!
That’s exactly the right time to not let yourself be caught unprepared when the high season starts and your beekeeping adventure begins!



Safety is our priority.
B-box has been designed and tested to ensure the simplest and safest coexistence of bees and humans. Our hives are created to be in accordance with current Italian regulations.*
The only point of entry and exit in the hive for bees is located 2.2 meters from the ground, so that all family members can observe, work and play around the hive in total safety.
But remember, bees are non-domesticated animals so we always suggest to get to know these beautiful animals before start your beekeeping adventure.

*for non Italian citizens: remember to check your local beekeeping regulations!


Our honey harvesting system allows you to easily separate the environment where bees deposit honey from that in which they live in. It’s not required to wear protective clothing for the process of extracting honey. In addition, this process does not mistreat bees, since it avoids crushing them during the collection process.
The dimension of the b-box has been studied to allow you to extract only the excess honey, leaving enough for your bees! Always remember that honey is their nourishment and represents their stocks for cold periods.

The whole family can observe bees through the transparent walls of the b-box.

Watch them work, building wax cells and fill them with honey… every day something magical happens!
While buying a b-box you can educate your kids to understand and respect these amazing animals. Bees, as pollinators, are fundamental for our ecosystem, for the biodiversity and the health of our community!

[These pictures] are exactly why we got a b-box. This is my son, David, and my grand-daughter, Zoë, being fascinated by the bees 🐝  (and being safe)
- James & Susan, UK
 Our bees are doing fine. The original ten thousand are all dead by now. Bees only live five to six weeks. I am guessing that we now have about twice as many bees as we had in the hive end of April. The picture shows our bees coming to and from work.
- Wolf Krebs, USA
The bees seem to love their new house. I do not have to do much, they are taking great care of themselves on their own.
