Honey bees are so very precious in our environment, seen as the many wonders of the world. Known as the secret heroes of the planet contributing to the pollination of approximately a third of the food we eat and contributing £200 million a year in the UK economy. In the UK 70 major crops are dependent on honey bee pollination. Seven out of nine major vitamin C-yielding crops around the globe (oranges, cabbages, green peppers, tomatoes, melons, tangerines and watermelon) partially or entirely depend on bee pollination for the production of their fruits and/or seeds.
Over the years the world’s bee populations have fallen. With the extended and cold winters of 2012/2013 the UK reported some of the highest loss figures since records began.
Our unique “rent-a-hive” service allows businesses and individuals to benefit from the wonderful contributions bees give to our environment. It displays that you or your company care about the environment and shows your green initiative to help our planet.
For a small weekly fee, we will be able to establish and maintain one or more of our colonies on your property. We are able to provide the hive(s) to your requirements and manage the bees throughout the year thus reducing the task of learning, dedicating time and high costs involved in managing a hive. We will do it all for you!
We use friendly Buckfast bees that are known for their placid non-aggressive mentality, they will go about their daily business whilst being approachable, causing no concern to your neighbours or customers.
We are able to tailor a solution that suits your needs and requirements as we offer a very competitive pricing structure. If the season goes well you will also be able to benefit from a portion of the delicious honey crop directly from the bees on your premises.
