Humans, bees, wasps living together

From the MAKE Flickr pool

Looks like Rob Cruickshank chills with bees on the daily!

A series of trap nests for solitary bees and wasps, mounted in plexiglas on our back window. The nests are open to the outside, and have plexiglas covers, alowing us to observe the activity from inside the house, as well as piezo transducer contact mics, allowing us to hear the activity inside, via the speakers on the right.

Wonder if he ever has to ask them to keep it down? Oh, I suppose he could just disconnect the speakers. I used to shared a place with a praying mantis … nice guy, very religious. … What? Check out the trap nest window on Flickr.
