Wild beehive

In consultation with the representative of the Latvian Apiculture Society, a functional solution was developed for the wild bee hotel in the territory of Berzmuiza Park. These bees are solitary, do not collect honey and are brilliant pollinating agents. The solution consists of a plant container where insects have the ability to find food more easily and which simultaneously attracts them to their likely headquarters. Under the plant container is a water container, a container that allows excess humidity to drain from the plants and enables insects to drink without drowning. Under the water container is a roof that protects wood blocks during rain, which is an insect headquarters with drilled holes facing the center.
The project has a prototype on a scale of 1: 1.
