The Bee Squad offers management services for those who wish to have bee colonies on their property. In addition to management, we will also collect information on your hives that will help to contribute to our understanding of beekeeping in your geographic area. We will use this information to develop best management practices to help reduce colony loss.
The Bee Squad is partnering with the Bee Informed Partnership to offer participants the opportunity to increase the information their hive provides by enrolling in the Sentinel Apiary program. You will need a minimum of 4 hives to participate. You can lean more about the program here!
Pricing (at cost) includes all materials needed to take samples, as well as labor to process your samples in our diagnostics lab. We highly recommend sampling 8 colonies, and using a hive scale to provide the most robust data; however, hive scales are optional. Click here to learn more about compatible hive scale options.
