Beecosystem has a modular indoor viewable beehive with a pipe to get the bees outside. It's seriously like a wall-mounted Termitat, but for bees.

I wonder if something similar would work for wasps. Imagine a glass window box with a huge vespula colony in it.

I would get one, but not sure if my mum would appreciate waking up one morning and seeing a box full of bees...

These have been around for many years. They are in my opinion far to small to be anything but a novelty item.
