Why keep bees?

Whether you want honey bees to pollinate your garden, produce honey for your family and friends, connect you to nature, the environment, and the community, or all of the above, Southeast Beescapes provides the services to make it easy to keep bees.

 

Pollination

Having honey bees in your garden, backyard, farm, or in any other greenspace could greatly impact the landscape. Increased pollination can improve plant yields, make flowers more vibrant and hardy, and in turn better feed the pollinators whose populations are declining worldwide.  

Connection

Honey bees are an easy gateway to understanding nature and the delicate balance between humans and the environment in which we live. 

There is also a strong community of beekeepers nationwide as well as in your local area. Many cities have their own beekeepers association that can provide support, advice, and education, as well as organize meetings and events.

Honey Bee Hive Installation and Year-round Maintenance

 

For a one-time fee per hive, I will consult with you, decide on the best location for the hives, organize all the materials necessary, and install the colonies of bees in the hive bodies at the appropriate time of year.

For an annual fee per hive, I will make bi-monthly visits to your hives, inspect for signs of a healthy hive and look for symptoms of disease. If a problem is diagnosed, the appropriate steps will be taken to regain the health of the hive. Excess honey in the hive will be harvested, extracted, bottled and returned to you. You will also be given detailed reports on each hive per visit.

If you're interested in moving forward, check out more information including the prices listed in the "About" section, or go ahead and give me a call or send me an email.
