We also specialize on setting up of open field apiaries to those with large pieces of land likely more than 5 acreage.
It is important for any bee-keeper to do site surveying before setting up an apiary, we offer this service to bee-keeper who wish to start bee-keeping by locating the most ideal place to site bees for a better productivity.
Pollination is an important step in the reproduction of the seed plants, the study of pollination brings together many disciplines such as botany, horticulture, entomology and ecology. Pollination is important in agriculture because most plant fruits will not develop if the ovules are not fertilized. Bees travel from flower to flower collecting nectar which is later converted to honey and pollen grains for proteins important on bee nutrition, as bees fly from flower to flower they deposit pollen into receptive stigma of the flowers.
Our bees are ready to be transported to major estate farms for pollination such as coffee, citrus, apples, macadamias, avocado, Mangoes, watermelons, tangerines, cucumber, plums, broccoli, cherry blueberry etc, we offer bees to commercial large scale farms for pollination at a fair price, bees will pollinate crops deliberately as they gather pollen to meet their nutritional needs of their brood. We bring bees on order to farms during blossom period, study shows that insect pollination improves plant yields by 20%.
Beecare apiary is committed to beekeeping skills development. Basic beekeeping training is offered to organized groups, SBOs and individual beekeepers who want to increase their knowledge in beekeeping.
Routine management of apiaries is vital to bee keepers, honey bee colonies should be inspected at least once every month to know your bees well and understand the problems affecting productivity. We offer this service to bee keepers as well as honey harvesting at fair price to suit your pocket; we however highly recommend training of bee keepers to do it for themselves rather than paying for these services which may turn expensive on the long run.
