2021 Foster Bee Program

People have been asking for years for a fixed price program where we will bring the bees into your yard and have a fixed monthly fee so here we go!

Santa Barbara hive stand for bees
We start with one hive and go up to 5 depending on area and time of year

Foster Program – $100 a month on autopay – Prepay for the year and get a second case of honey , $160 a month for Corporate or Santa Ynez Valley.

As a live bee removal company our main goal is to rescue honey bee colony’s that would have otherwise been exterminated. 

Throughout the year we accumulate rescue colonies and we are always looking for new safe environments for our bees while we restore good health in the hive. With the foster program we will be able to place these hives around Santa Barbara county.   These bees will act as a canary in the coal mine and let us know about the health of the area as well as pollinate nearby flowers.

The program includes:

  • Routine hive inspections at an average of 12 visits per year. 
  • All required equipment such as hive boxes, frames, feeders, etc.
  • Build a stand and place a swarm trap
  • Pest management
  • 1 case of honey in the fall in good years
