McDonald's just opened a tiny restaurant for bees —
here's what it's like inside




• McDonald's has opened its smallest restaurant in the world as a haven for bees.

• The tiny eatery, which is a fully-functioning beehive, was handcrafted by a woodworker and has "room for thousands of important guests," according to a video of the finished product.

• The restaurant is complete with a McDonald's sign, "drive-thru," patio with seating, and advertisements on the windows.

• McDonald's commissioned the project to pay homage to its restaurants in Sweden that have beehives on their rooftops.

• Other McDonald's franchises have contributed to efforts to save bees, which have been dying at an alarming rate in recent years, by planting flowers outside their restaurants.

What a great way to attract children to bee hives.
If the bees are eating at McD's will honey still be healthy?

I guess this means McDonalds doesn’t source from heavy pesticide users. I crack myself up.

So I had two dead outs this spring. I made a couple swarm traps. The first I put in a huge oak tree on the edge of a field per the best practices. The second I left in the barn door until I could get to it. So yeah, I caught a swarm in my barn.

My bees looked very good today. They're making honey at a nice clip and have excellent numbers. I'll have to do a mite check but visually everything seems fine.

Personally, I think it's a gimmick. If honey is thin enough to flow, the moisture content is probably too high, which would promote fermentation. Honey reads around 18% on a refractometer, down from the 80+% moisture of nectar. Extraction is done by either cutting off the cappings and spinning the frames in an extractor or by "crush-and-strain", whereby the combs are cut from the frame and either hung to drain or crushed with something resembling a potato masher. I also don't see what happens to the bees on the frames that are pierced - do they get pierced as well? Interesting concept, but something for those with extra cash to play with. Rev. Langsroth (developer of the currently used 10 frame hives and discoverer of "bee space") had it right.

Are you AI or are you responding to something from long ago?

Hi misiks, if you use the quote feature to respond to something, people will understand what you are saying better. You seem to be responding to old posts, which is fine, but hard to follow of you don't quote them.

Well if you put it that way it almost sounds welcoming. Sorry if that sounded surly.
