Interested in having bees in your backyard or business here in the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania area? But are unsure about making the commitment to doing it on your own?
Gee's Bees ‘Host a Hive’ program may be an option for you.


Host a bee hive

Our ‘Host a Hive’ program allows individuals and families to enjoy the benefits and wonder of having bees in their yards without the worry of caring for and maintaining a bee hive.

To support bee hives successfully, it takes a great deal of knowledge as well as a financial investment which often acts as a barrier for those interested in bees to make the leap into beekeeping. So Gees Bees is now offering backyard beehive installations and ongoing hive maintenance to individuals and families who are interested in having the benefit of pollinators for their gardens as well as access to honey from their own backyard without the added commitment of being responsible for the bees’ care.

‘Hosts’ will receive some of the honey collected from their hive* The ‘Hosts’ will have the added intrinsic benefit of observing these amazing creatures busy at work as well as contributing to the overall well-being of bees in our community. 

In our “Host a Hive” program, Gee's Bees maintains ownership of all hives and the bees who live in them, but at any point you wish to transition into purchasing and maintaining your own hive Gees Bees would be happy to help you as much as you would like. Having bees in our communities is vitally important, so at Gees Bees, we would like to be supportive of the welfare of bees in our community through whatever avenues possible. There is an option of private beekeeping education and services on an a la carte basis as it suites your needs.

Please feel free to contact us for a free property assessment and evaluation of optimal location for hives in your space. If you have any safety questions related to be having bees in your yard please do not hesitate to contact us.

* – this will depend on if the hive produces enough honey to take from their stores. Hosts will receive honey from other locations if they want.
