Many crops require honeybees to transfer pollen in order to have a good seed set and ensure that a good fruit develops around these seeds. Recommended density of beehives per acre for Fruit and Vegetable crops:
Hive Stocking Rates
Small Fruit Crops

Do you have a swarm of bees on your property?
Swarming is an instinctive part of the annual life cycle of a honeybee colony. It provides a mechanism for the colony to reproduce itself. Bees in a swarm are generally docile and not inclined to sting or attack, and they will usually leave within a few days on their own for a more permanent location.
However, if you have a swarm that has permanently settled, or you are anxious to have it removed, you can contact a local beekeeper who may be able to remove the bees without killing them.
We provide beehive management to ensure hive survival and maximize hive production. This service may vary with the objectives of a customer whether for honey production, pollination, queen breeding, for pollen production, propolis production, beewax production, royal jelly or bee package production.
An apiary is a place where honeybees are kept either for domestic or commercial and range from a single hive to hundreds of hives but mostly maximum of 50 colonies per apiary is recommended.
