Pollination ServicesHive rentals For local farmers
Our bees aren’t just busy, they’re BUSY! You can rent a colony (or more!) of our amazing pollinators for an entire bloom cycle.
Pollinating different crops makes our bees happy, but did you know by using honey bees for pollination, you can significantly increase your crop yield? That’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?
Every year, we rent out colonies of bees to local farmers to pollinate eleven different fruit crops: apples, blueberries, currants, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, kiwi, pumpkin, zucchini, and squash. Our bees will be your busy bees for the entire bloom cycle which is around four weeks long.
Honeybee Colony Rentals and Installation
You better bee-lieve that renting bees is a pretty awesome way to increase your yield by up to 50%. It’s natural, good for the bees, and good for the world! The price to rent one colony at Honeybee Centre ranges from $50 to $135 (depending on the type of flower being pollinated). Depending on the variety of flower, most growers require anywhere from one to six colonies per acre. Our minimum installation is 24 colonies per field.
