Hiveworld.ca staff check in with customers to ensure complete satisfaction with our bees and products. and we are delighted with the very positive response!

Bees supplied to Hiveworld.ca are government-inspected before they are delivered to our customers. This ensures your Hiveworld.ca bees are disease-free and ready for a healthy, productive summer.

Of course, it is not uncommon for bee colonies to run into a variety of issues once they are on the beekeeper's property. Hiveworld.ca is firmly committed to giving you the personal and hands-on support you need to resolve any problems that arise, by phone or email, or with a site visit as we are able.

As a rule of thumb, your hive at this point should have two 10-frame boxes full of bees, weighing between 75 and 80 lbs combined to be in great condition for over-wintering. Using a weigh-scale is better than prying open the brood boxes and disturbing the queen and bees inside them. If you suspect your hive`s condition is falling short, please contact Hiveworld.ca today.
