February 2022

February brings us closer to spring, and that means we will be hearing the hum of our bees soon! BC beekeepers are getting closer to opening their hives, as the prairies still have a few more months to go (depending on weather). It's not quite time to open up the boxes and feed quite yet!

Did you order 2022 spring bees from us?

If you did, then this is the page you want to bookmark for future updates! It contains frequently-updated information about package bees and starter hives leading up to your pick up dates. We will include a behind the scenes look at what is happening.

January 2022

January can be a tough month as we all patiently wait for spring to arrive. We can get pretty anxious not being able to check on our hives, and it's pretty upsetting if you found out you lost a colony. While we wait, here are some tips for beginners and beyond about preparing for spring. To brighten up your day, watch some spring videos to hear that hum we all miss so much.

Things you want to be doing right now:

  • Pre-ordering your 2022 bees. Order our package bees and queens now.
  • Check on your hive as weather warms up. See if you can hear a hum or see signs of bees flying out for a cleansing flight.
  • If you have lost your hive, investigate and try to answer the question 'Why?.'
