My expertise is the ability to care for, nurture and prepare hives for a successful harvest. This is usually a year-long process that involves good management practices along the way, which in turn yields great results.

Our results have had a significant impact on how the hive itself responds to a change in queen technique when it is first introduced. This technique allows the entire hive to get a fresh start and work twice as hard as it is used to.

CAPABILITIES
  • How to design hives for easier management and inspection.
  • Hive management with proactive hive management techniques for pest control and disease monitoring.
  • Harvesting techniques that use bee-friendly practices, such as bee escapes, to harvest honey without harming the colony.
GOOD PRACTICES
  • Organic and sustainable management hives
  • Good practices in honey and wax extraction
  • Hives with a strong posture and pest resistant qualities are some of the advantages compared to others.
SOLUTIONS APPLIED
  • Use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, including the use of chemical treatments, biological controls, and regular monitoring to control pests and diseases.
  • Queen management to have more control over the genetics of their colonies to maximize honey production.
