Interested in having bees on your property but don’t have the time or knowledge to look after your own hives? We can help with that!
Our Hive Hosting program allows for anyone to keep bee hives on their land without the knowledge, expertise and work that goes along with caring for them. This allows you to contribute to the local environment. You also get to enjoy honey, pollination benefits, education, and the joy of watching bees at their work in your community and ecosystem. At Bees Please, we keep the travel of our bees to a minimum by hosting on a yearly basis, thus reducing their travel stress. Happy, healthy bees are our main focus. Honey bees are facing many challenges these days, including mites, diseases, and pesticides. By hosting hives clients can help bolster the bee population and thereby positively impact the environment. The bees will return the favour in fresh local honey!
Bees Please will start booking for 2024 in late Fall of 2023. If you send in a request for information we will contact you in late Fall. We look forward to another year of helping the bees, spreading knowledge and sharing some truly amazing backyard honey. Look for us around town in our new ‘bee comb’ car. We may be bringing bees to your neighborhood!
Packages include honey from each hive of your own backyard bees. Your own backyard honey makes a wonderful gift! Also, enjoy personalized labels on your honey jars. Want your jars to say “Anne’s honey”? No problem! Or “Lochside Drive Honey”? Absolutely.
