Whether you are interested in starting up beekeeping as a hobby or looking to get into the business, Bees & Pest Removal in the GTA has everything you need to get started!
Beekeeping as a Hobby
Beekeeping can be a relaxing, interesting and remunerative hobby. Small scale colonies are often used as a source of honey and beeswax, as well as a pollination method for urban gardens. If you are interested in getting started in beekeeping on your property we’d be glad to help.
Beekeeping Supplies and Information
We provide beekeeping supplies and information to beginners, hobbyists and beekeeping professionals. Beekeeping is an enjoyable pastime that offers benefits for enthusiasts of all ages and provides the reward of a naturally sweet honey crop, as well as lesser known benefits to your backyard garden. Plants need to pollinate in order to grow, and honeybees account for as much as 80% of all pollination activities.
Honey and Other Valuable Products
Besides honey, bees produce other products, such as royal jelly, beeswax and propolis, which are highly sought after and command high commercial values. Beeswax is used in the production of cosmetics and candles, royal jelly is touted as a health supplement, and propolis, which is used by bees to repair cracks in the hive, is used in medical applications, such as homeopathy, acupuncture and other forms of alternative medicine.
We got our start as commercial beekeepers. To this day we still sell honey and starter hives (nuclei), which can be mailed to many destinations. Please contact us first to make sure we can ship to your location.
