The Honeycomb Hives, Which Are Currently the Focus of a Crowdfunding Project, Will Set New Standards for Serious Beekeepers
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 29, 2018 / Doug Lambrecht, a mountain farmer and beekeeper from North Carolina, is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the Honeycomb Hives integrative beekeeping system.

As Lambrecht noted, as a devoted beekeeper, he is alarmed by the news stories about honey bee losses and the challenges that they face. From extreme weather and parasites to Varroa mites, viruses, and pesticide use, the odds are unfortunately increasingly stacked against honey bees.
Inspired by a keen desire to help his beloved honey bees, Lambrecht and Honeycomb Hives have developed an innovative new approach to beekeeping to try to help bees survive these various challenges.
“The Honeycomb Hives ‘Integrative Beekeeping System’ is bee-centric, focused on thermal efficiency, eliminating condensation and reducing pest access to a minimum,” Lambrecht said, adding that it also incorporates additional goals of making beekeeping more attractive, approachable and affordable for beekeepers as well as tighter and much healthier for honey bees.
There are a number of key reasons that Honey Hives are the best environment for bees. For example, as Lambrecht noted, they are more than twice as efficient as comparable rectangular hives - this means the bees do not have to work as hard to keep their cluster warm.
In addition, because the Honeycomb Hive angled roof eliminates condensation problems, any rain or other moisture will run down the roof panels and side walls, resulting in no water dripping on bees.
“Also, Honeycomb Hives utilize very precise construction details,” he said, adding that fewer crevices, corners and cracks mean fewer places for pests to hide.
In order to help pay for the marketing and production costs associated with bringing Honeycomb Hives and its different variations to market, Lambrecht recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. There, he hopes to raise $50,000 and help as many honeybees thrive and survive as possible.
