We can come to you!
Looking after the bees is an important job, but we believe that the most important part of our job is education! What better way to learn about bees and their keepers then to have a beekeeper teach you. We have had the pleasure of speaking at many different venues; Tiny Township Farm Crawl, Farm Fresh Food Fest, Wye Marsh Wildlife Center, The Villa. We made presentations at local schools, clubs and even managed to get on TV a couple times (“I Love My Job” TVO kids)! Educating the public about the importance of our honey bees and native bees is just one aspect of the large web of knowledge associated with beekeeping. We can accommodate all ages and can even have your presentation done in French.
Book with us today, we look forward to hearing from you!
Do you have a swarm or nest of honey bees on your property? Before you call, please make sure that they really are honey bees. We will not remove any native species unless the nest is in a location too close to human activities (door frames, children’s play area,). There will be a service fee for removing native bees or wasp’s nests. Swarming is a natural part of the honey bee’s life cycle. Honey bees in a swarm are generally not aggressive unless they are being agitated. If you have a swarm of bees that can be easily removed don’t hesitate to call right away, a swarm may only stay in that area for only 1 to 2 days.
How to Identify a Honey Bee
