Since the early 2000's, honeybees have been dying off at an unsustainable rate with billions of bees disappearing in the United States and losses estimated at greater than 30-40% per year. The collapse of bee populations is a major threat to our global backyard since pollinators are critical to the cultivation of over a third of America's food supply.
As beekeepers and concerned citizens for the plight of the honeybee, we decided to take a more active role in promoting education and understanding of the issues surrounding these remarkable insects.
For instruction, we highly recommend the programs and expertise offered by the Forsyth Beekeepers Association, and other regional chapters that are sponsored by the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association (NCSBA).
For supplies, we carry a full line of Langstroth, Warre and Top Bar hives in both Cedar and Sugar Pine. Please contact us directly for more information.
