Host-A-Hive

Bees play a critical role in our ecosystem, but are facing the threat of disappearing due to modern agricultural practices, lack of habitat and increasing stressors.

 

  Host-A-Hive? Donating the funds for a bee hive or hosting a hive (s) on your property is a great way to help save the honey bee and increases the honey bee population. Club members maintain the hive and you get to contribute to the welfare of the honey bee.

Q: How can I tell if my land is suitable for the bees?

A: Bees need land that is chemical-free and pollution free.

We place hives on rural property that is free of the use of any herbicides, pesticides or chemical treatments. Food sources of pollen and nectar plus water nearby are essentials. Hives do need some sort of wind break plus direct sunlight exposure, ideally facing south and east for at least 6 – 8 hours per day. If your rural property, farm, and/or gardens have a good supply of untreated (non-sprayed) fruit trees, or native flowering plants, then you likely have the perfect spot for bees.
