We visit the site free of charge for the initial visit. This initial visit is to become familiar with your garden or yard and to find the best location for the placement of the beehive. Subsequent site visits are to place the beehives. Don't worry as we do take care of our bees, we first take care of the site registration and perform disease checks and varroa mite control measures. We further check swarm prevention and collection. When you are interested we share our knowledge with you and you can join us during inspections to observe our beekeeping techniques. We have several honey plans and depending on the chosen plan you have options for the honey which is made in the beehive.
New Zealand relies on insects to pollinate crops worth at least $2 Billion dollars to the New Zealand economy and the majority of this pollination is carried out by the Honey Bee.
These crops are fruit such as Plum, Pear and Kiwifruit, Vegetables such as Tomato and Squash, berries such as Blueberries and Rasberries, and also crops grown for seed such as Carrots, Radish and Onions. Bees also pollination important pastures species such as clovers. Honey bees are the most important pollinators world-wide and pollinate approximately 35% of the human food in the world.
Bees also pollinate around 33% of food for our meat sources in New Zealand alone, in New Zealand there are distinct advantages to use beehives to increase yield of these meat sources.
Increase pollination by having the correct density for each crop. More on this link....
