Clients are looking for businesses committed to sustainability. One way to show your business cares about the environment is to add a beehive to your office or project site. Bees contribute essential pollination services to communities and ensure thriving ecosystems. Now you have a unique opportunity to set your company apart and take an innovative approach to corporate social responsibility by engaging our experts to build a thriving beehive at your location.
Making it a Reality
Never before has there been an opportunity to access the expertise of an Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA)-accredited invertebrate zoo to build bee habitats at your office or project site. We offer a full spectrum of installation and maintenance services to ensure your hive’s success.
Site Assessment and Hive Installation
Our beekeeping experts come to your site to install your first package of bees. This process involves an assessment of the best place to install the hive, as well as step-by-step instruction on how to get started and help the bees settle in.
Once the new hive is installed, our beekeeping experts can help assess hive health and train you or your team in various aspects required to keep it thriving. Services include one-on-one training and implementation of hive splitting, pest management, queen installation, and overwintering preparation.
