Live Honey Bee Removal - Humane removal of live honey bees from  your property to re-home them without pesticides or chemicals. Live removals include swarms and established hives. Cost varies based on how established the live bees are, difficulty to access, and location. A local, easy-to-access swarm removal may be free, but an established hive living in your roof will require an estimate. Call the swarm line for urgent swarm removals.

Hive Share Program  -  Enjoy bees in your own backyard with the hive share program. Hive shares support you with full hive maintenance, site evaluation, pollination, and 50% of the honey harvest each year. I'll come out and manage your hive for you and harvest & bottle the honey each season. Honey harvest amounts are not guaranteed. Rates range from $250-500 annually depending  on location. Hive Share Program reservations and payments must be made by January 30th each year to  ensure you'll receive  bees that spring.



Available in NorthWestern Colorado Only

Beekeeper Mentoring

Becoming a skilled beekeeper requires thought partners and extra support for the first couple years of their journey into beekeeping. Online mentoring can help. Sessions can be booked individually and may involve a variety of approaches, including live sessions in your apiary, demonstrations live from my apiary, or over virtual  coffee. Topics include things like bee biology & anatomy, how a colony works, apiary set up, installing new colonies (packages or nucs),  swarm catching, troubleshooting, treatments, routine inspections, harvesting honey, re-queening, or making splits. Online mentoring sessions start at $150/hour.
