LANDOWNERS
BEE REMOVALS

When it comes to bee removals we offer:

​​

  • Removals to any person (urban/rural) up a 200km radius around Port Elizabeth through a respected third party bee removal specialist. 

Fill in the form below if you have some bee problems. We will do our best with our knowledge to help you and refer you to someone else to professionally assist with the rest of your query!

* This service is free to all our land owners where we have apiary sites (bee hives) in off season time+- June/July.

SWARMING CONTROL

Don't give moving swarms (picture) a chance to settle them selves into a building or any unwanted place were they can become a life threatening risk. We offer a service to help control this annual problem at a nominal fee. Contact below!

  • Catch hives are appropriately placed on scheduled trips.

  • They are taken down at night on scheduled removal trips.

These small swarms are relocated to grow for future use.

* This service is free to all our land owners where we have apiary sites (bee hives).

DO YOU WANT TO HOST US AND BENEFIT

We are always in need of new places to put hives due to theft, vandalism, drought, lack of food sources and slow expansion.

Landowners are generously "paid" in sweet honey regardless of whether there is a seasonal harvest from the hives or not and also have other benefits like the above services and the possibility of free pollination of small scale crops.

Our procedures:

  • We will come inspect your land if it is suitable.

  • Apiary sites are well selected and will not disturb farming or other activities. (we will rather not place hives if we think it might be in the way)

  • We need a small flat space with all year vehicle access next to hives, truck access is more preferable.

  • Sites are kept tidy at all times, only the hives and stands will be visible.

Fill in the form below if you think you have a place for our hives, we work mostly in a 200 km radius around Port Elizabeth. Commercial beekeeping (for a living) would simply not be viable without these agreements. Thank you!

We also act as an extra eye for land owners. Some of the following is frequently reported:

  • Suspicious activity

  • Open gates

  • Snares

  • Damaged fences

  • Sick animals / Crop alerts

  • Water leaks

We make use of specialized satellite cameras to capture movements around hives and other areas. This provides great info for both beekeeper and farmer / land owner to sometimes take preventative measures before serious theft occurs. Mostly locals are involved in these activities, it is good to know what is going on around you. Lets rather be prepared than surprised!
