Urban Beekeeping: A Brief Starter’s Guide

August 23, 2022 Beekeeping

Honey Doesn’t Get More Local Than This!


If you’re looking for a productive and fun new hobby this summer, then at-home beekeeping might be a great choice for you! Beekeeping at home is a time-honored tradition, especially here in the United States. Beekeeping in America has been around for about as long as we’ve had established settlements, with the first shipment of bees arriving from Europe in 1622. Many advancements in modern day beekeeping coming from America too; It is a deeply intertwined part of our culture! Backyard Beekeeping has a plethora of benefits as well. Not only will you have personal pollinators for your flowers and garden, but you will have honey and wax to give out (or even sell) to your friends, neighbors, and family.

Bee Keeper on Bee Safe Bee Removal

“But wait, don’t I need a license or something to keep bees!?”

Depending on your state and local regulations, probably not! While it may be surprising to those not in the know, backyard beekeeping is fairly common and largely unhindered by regulations for the vast majority of cities and towns in the US. Some states, like Texas, may even offer an agricultural tax exemption on your land depending on the size of your land and the amount of hives present.

However, it is always important to make sure it is legal in your specific city and county. A great go-to resource for finding this information is your local beekeepers association, they will be intimately familiar with local laws and requirements for beekeepers. These associations are made up of professionals and hobbyists alike and can also offer you localized advice on getting started or solutions to problems you may come across.

You can find a list of statewide beekeeping associations from the American Beekeeping Federation, the national level beekeepers association. Networking with other beekeepers is a great way to keep up with the latest news and issues that beekeepers in your area are dealing with. Most people in the beekeeping world are incredibly helpful and friendly, so don’t be hesitant about asking questions! If you cannot get ahold of your local beekeeper association, you can simply look at the local ordinances of your municipality and state online or at your local library, it will usually be included under the “Animals” section of the code. Some cities may have you pay a small fee for a permit to keep multiple hives.

Before going off and searching for a hive and a suit on Amazon, you need to consider one of the most important aspects of beekeeping: Safety. If you have a dog that uses your backyard frequently, you might consider putting the hive in a place it cannot access. Bees can seriously hurt or even kill your furry family members, so keep that in mind as you plan out your apiary. If you have neighbors in close proximity or are planning on keeping a hive close to your property line, it’s a good idea to consult with your neighbors about your plans. Understandably, some neighbors might be uneased by bees being so close to their property. Reassure them that bee attacks rarely occur outside of the immediate area of the hive, and that you’re complying with all local and state ordinances. Some municipalities will limit how close you can have hives to your property lines without permission from adjacent property owners, so again it’s good to be familiar with the laws surrounding beekeeping in your city and state.

Now that you’ve figured out where you CAN put the hive, it’s time to decide where you WILL put it. Bees’ behavior is heavily influenced by temperature and the sun. Putting it in a spot where the morning sun will hit it and angling the entrance to the Southeast will get the bees out foraging earlier in the morning and in turn produce more honey. It’s important to keep temperature in mind too. If you live in a particularly warm climate that frequently reaches over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer it may be a good idea to place it in a spot that gets sun in the morning and shade in the hotter parts of the afternoon. Bees keep their hives at a stable temperature of 95 degrees, and any excess heat will prevent them from foraging and making honey. Try to pick a spot that won’t have excess wind, as that also discourages foraging. If you live in a region with bears, it might be wise to install a bear fence. It’s not just a cartoonish trope that bears LOVE calorie rich honey, they actively seek it out.

Once you’ve picked a good location for your hive it’s time to get supplies. Luckily there is a wide variety of bee equipment from budget to high-end price points to choose from.

What Equipment do I need?

  • Beekeeping boxesThe Hive and Frames

While historically there have been many varieties of hive, most beekeepers today use the Langstroth hive, or a variety thereof. The Langstroth Hive uses movable frames for the bees to build their comb on. The hive body on the bottom provides a place for the queen to lay eggs, divided with a queen separator from the “supers” on top, which are only for workers and honey.

If you’re handy with tools, you can find an unassembled Langstroth hive with frames for around $150 USD. However, if you have a little more money to spend, you might want to consider the Flow hive. The Flow hive is a recent development in beekeeping that makes honey harvesting easier than ever. It has a built in offset hive structure that allow you to break up the combs, letting it flow directly down into jars. It is quite a bit more expensive than a standard hive, but they offer starter kits including a beekeeping suit, a smoker, and more for $899.

  • The Beekeeping Suit

With a beekeeping suit you have several options; they come in full suit and jacket styles and are made with a variety of materials. While the classic suits were made out of heavy canvas, modern suits are made with multiple layers of breathable mesh, making for a much cooler experience if you’re in a warmer climate. These suits vary in price from $50 – $200.

beekeeper gloves


  • The Gloves

Like Beekeeping suits, gloves come in a variety of materials, a cloth sleeve and the actual glove section that covers your hand. Harder rubber glove varieties offer better protection; however, leather gloves allow more dexterity and are easier to use.

bee removal tool smoke


  • The Smoker


With smokers there’s not a lot of variety in form, however there are big differences in quality and durability. If you opt for a cheap smoker and take care of it (i.e. not leaving it out in the elements) then you should be fine. These retail for around $20 – $50.

Bee removal hive tool

  • The Hive Tool

The hive tool is what you’ll use to break up wax and propolis, as well as pull frames out of the hive. These are simple tools, usually made with stainless steel, and can be purchased for under $10.

  • The Brush


The beekeeper’s brush is used to gently move bees off the framed hives while doing inspections and harvesting honey. Both natural fiber and nylon brushes are available and perform the function the same way. These brushes can be purchased for less than $10.

  • The Extracting Tools

This is the part of beekeeping that can get pricey, especially if you want to do it right. However these are also tools that you have plenty of time to save up for while your bees are making the honey. The most expensive part of this setup will be the extractor. The extractor will usually hold 3 or 4 frames in a metal cylinder and spins the frames to extract the honey using centrifugal force. It will collect into the bottom of the extractor where you can drain the honey into jars with a valve. These will usually come with an uncapping tool, which either punctures or removes the caps of the combs, allowing the honey to be released. Extractors will run you between $75 and $300 depending on the material and quality.


If you can’t afford an extractor, contact a local beekeeper or another hobbyist and ask how much it would cost to rent theirs. As mentioned before, people in the beekeeping world are often very helpful and friendly, some might let you use it for free provided you take care of and clean it. Another option is just using the whole comb honey cut up into squares, however this makes it hard to use and will end up getting wax in your tea or food. Full comb honey is often sold as a gourmet food item anyways!

While there are endless amounts of beekeeping tools and accessories, the above equipment list is all a hobbyist needs to produce jars and jars of delicious ultra-local honey. Now the only thing you need to get your hands on are the bees.

Believe it or not, purchasing bees online can be just as simple as buying a sweater. There are dozens of websites that can sell you a thriving colony of bees from a variety of different honey bee species. We recommend doing research on the specific kind of bees you want to raise, as the different species have unique characteristics and advantages, especially depending on the climate you live in.

After you’ve got your bees and equipment, all there is to do is sit back and let them do their work. You’ll need to inspect your hive once every few weeks. Learn how to identify mites like Varroa, one of the worst hive mites that can make your honey unusable. You should also be able to recognize bacterial infections like Foulbrood. Keeping the hive healthy lets the bees produce honey more efficiency, but don’t over-do it. Frequent inspections can stress the bees out; once every 7-14 days will be just fine.


Stolen Beehives Tracked by Beekeepers

Stolen Beehives Tracked by Beekeepers

During the springtime, it’s common for beekeepers to rent out bees nationwide to states that would benefit from the small pollinators. Almond farmers, California’s most important crop, rent out bees to help with the growing process. However, as almond trees blossom into beautiful white and pink flowers, theft crimes rise to capture the valuable beehives that help sustain California.

Beekeepers have been dealing for years with theft crimes related to their beehives. Beekeepers have methods to make sure they can obtain their beehives again by tracking (from a range of GPS devices, surveillance cameras, and other anti-theft products) where the beehives go. While the beehive thefts may come to a surprise to readers, they are a major problem to beekeepers because of how bees truly affect our ecosystem in a positive way.

If beehives aren’t taken care of or used in the wrong manner or in locations that can damage the environment, they can become a danger to people. In Pennsylvania, three beehives were illegally removed from a garden of a grocery chain. If we calculate how many that could have been, that means over 60,000 bees were stolen away! That’s only in Pennsylvania. In California where pollination from bees is important, beehive thefts happen more frequently and at a bigger scale during peak bee season.

Almond Tree

In the last few weeks where peak bee season has not even occurred yet, over 1,000 beehives have already been stolen from orchard trees. Authorities have announced a $10,000 reward, given by the state beekeepers association, for important information about the largest burglary involving 380 beehives near a farm in Mendocino County. Tauzer Apiaries wrote on Facebook how difficult it felt to have worked hard to take care of bees for a year only for the beehives to be stolen from them. Fortunately, an anonymous person provided valuable information that led a recovery rescue for most beehive boxes (and a stolen forklift) that were 55 miles away from the family-led Tauzer beekeeper apiary. Authorities also found bee frames that belong to another beekeeper. The victim, Helio Medina, has been rumored to have lost over 250 beehives last year. Medina said that the theft events from last year negatively impacted his apiary, so he learned to put GPS trackers in his cable-locked beehive boxes from now on while putting cameras around his property. One suspect in this burglary, that led to the rescue, was arrested too.

Beekeepers feel like they have to do what they have to do to protect their important beehives, because in reality, there’s not a lot people can do to help them. Medina also said to keep an eye for beehives in the night to see if he can capture any robbers, since that’s when burglaries are most common. What’s unfortunate, most robberies are done by beekeepers or people who know about bee transportation. A detective stated that most of these robbers’ goal is to make as much money as possible with bees and leave the hives to die.

Not only are beehives valuable to be stolen, but robbers have also stolen beehives due to an increase of renting prices. What used to cost $50 to rent a beehive now costs around $230. For many beekeepers or farmers who depend to continue growing, that cost has proved to be way
too high. However, the increased price might be warranted, because there’s been huge demand to grow almonds in California to the point that over 1.3 million acres is used just to grow almonds alone. The demand is so high that professional beekeepers have calculated that
growing all the almonds in the U.S. would take 90% of all colonies nationwide (from locations like Texas, New York, and Florida to name a few).

Although farmers need beehives, beekeepers need to take in account the dangers of the different environments beehives will encounter. From loss of habitat, insects, and disease, beekeepers have to be careful with changes like droughts and having to artificially supplement
bees with sugar to keep going. These additional costs can turn into a nightmare for beekeepers. If a beekeeper loses a beehive, not only does that mean the death of thousands of bees but also a loss of honey production, pollination, and income. So, some beekeepers barely break
even. Beekeeping and renting out takes a lot of time and money to make sure bees are healthy and employees are paid out in time. Therefore, if farmers steal it is because they can not afford to pay renting costs of beehives. If beekeepers steal, that’s because they can not afford to take
care of bees since in the end it may mean they will only break even.

To combat beehive thefts, startup company Bee Hero aims to create a beehive box with GPS enabled. For now, beekeepers advise other beekeepers to write their names, phone numbers, cameras, and SmartWater CSI so detectives can easily track back beehives to their original
owner. Also, the almond industry is researching ways for almonds to require less pollination from bees that has raised $15 million from California government to create smart agriculture that will be efficient for not years to come, but decades too.

Winter Bees

Winter: A Honeybee Story

January 5, 2022 Beekeeping

Winter Bees

As a snowflake may drift into a front yard, you will find three kinds of people. Some may run out with joy at the winter wonder. Others stare with curiosity from the window. The rest cuddle up indoors and try to think warm thoughts.

Honeybees fall into the third category, though they cuddle up much sooner than we do. Once temperatures fall to 50 degrees, honeybees—or should I clarify, the female bees—gather inside their hive. Male drones are often left outside to freeze, as breeding season is over and their large consumption needs threaten the winter supply (see our “A Bee’s Life” blog post).

Beginning of an End

While low temperatures prevent bees from flying, the pollen level is the true trigger for when diutinus bees start to be produced. As pollen becomes scarce, the colony prepares for winter by creating diutinus bees from female eggs, in a similar fashion to dedicating a queen from a female egg.

A queen bee is born by feeding a female egg a diet of royal jelly. Like the queen, winter bees have a special, lean larval diet—in contrast to the queen’s rich diet. This protein-deficient caste grows fat-enlarged bodies to produce vitellogenin, which can supplement a pollen supply if needed.


Survival of the Honey Bee

To survive the winter, the bees must stay warm and fed. The colony will swarm within the hive and form a tight winter cluster, placing the queen at its core. The workers will shake and shiver (vibrating as we have seen them do in a waggle dance) to generate heat.

The center of the swarm will maintain a temperate around 90 degrees, while the outside of the swarm will be around 50 degrees. To survive, the swarm will crawl together in formation to reach their reserves of honey.

And this is how they live for the entirety of winter. In a giant mass, constantly swapping places to keep everyone warm and fed.

Will The Winter Bees Make It?

The colony’s survival entirely rests on the preparations made in the previous season and if any notable season. A diutinus bee can run out of vitellogenin, and if a dry spring follows winter, the colony may very well perish to starvation.


Honey bees temperature

What If Temperatures Rise?

As we have seen this winter in Texas, sometimes a winter may stay above 50 degrees. What then?

If the temperature goes above 50, the colony may briefly leave the hive to dispose of excrement. But, without pollen to collect, the colony will retreat to the hive to stay warm and hold on until pollen and heat become plentiful.

How is honey made by bees

How is Honey Made?

October 1, 2021 Beekeeping

How Honey is Made by Bees

Honey is the product of the incredible efficiency of the honeybee industry. Inside the beehive, each bee has a particular job, and the whole process runs smoothly.

Bees need two kinds of food. One is honey made from nectar, the sugary juice that collects in the heart of the flowers. The other comes from the anthers of flowers, which contain small grains called pollen. Just as flowers have different colors, so do their pollen.

Most bees gather only pollen or nectar. As bees suck the nectar from the flower, it is stored in their special honey stomach, ready to be transferred to the honey-making bees in the hive. If hungry, the bee opens a valve in the nectar sac. A portion of the payload passes through to their stomach to be converted to energy for their own needs.

The bee is a marvelous flying machine. Bees can carry a payload of nectar or pollen close to their weight. Consider that even the most advanced design in aircraft can only take off with a load of one-quarter of its weight, and you’ll appreciate the miracle that the honeybee can remain airborne with such a load.

When her nectar “sacs” is full, the honeybee returns to the hive. Nectar is delivered to one of the indoor bees and is then passed mouth-to-mouth from bee to bee. Until its moisture content is reduced from about 70% to 20%, this changes the nectar into honey. Sometimes the nectar is stored at once in cells in the honeycomb before the mouth-to-mouth working. Some evaporation is caused by the 32.5°C temperature inside the hive.

Finally, the honey is placed in storage cells and capped with beeswax in readiness for the arrival of newborn baby bees. Pollen is mixed with nectar to make “bee bread” and is fed to the larvae. A baby bee needs food rich in protein if the bee community is to flourish. Below is a YouTube video explaining what more occurs when bees make honey.


Bees & Their Pollen

Before returning to the flower again for more pollen, the bee combs clean and cares for themselves to work more efficiently. Throughout their life cycle, the bee will tirelessly collect pollen, bring it back to the hive, clean herself, and then set out for more pollen.Forager bees start from the hive for blossom patches when they three weeks old. As they live to be only six or seven weeks old, they have much work to do and little time in which to do it.

There will be many other bees working simultaneously, and the air will be noisy with their droning. It takes 300 bees about three weeks to gather 450 g of honey. On average, a hive contains 40,000 bees.

Bees in danger

Honey Bees Dying at Increasing Rates

July 1, 2021 Beekeeping

The summer of 2021 has been significant to people around the nation. People are finding the time to go out more, but what about the bees? What does this summer mean to them? The Bee Informed, a nonprofit organization using data to improve the lives of honey bees, has presented honey bee colony losses in the United States for 2020-2021. This summer means that bees are in more danger than ever.

The annual survey covers over 3,000 beekeepers that manage 7% of all the honey bee colonies that are present in the United States. When comparing summer and winter losses, the report finds that commercial beekeepers (managing more than 500 colonies) have been affected worse than backyard beekeepers (managing less than 50 colonies) and sideliner beekeepers (managing 51-500). The labor of commercial honey bee colonies help pollinate an estimated $15 billion amount of food crops per year, so commercial beekeepers are going to start looking to find preventive methods.

Usually bee colonies die in the winter, but the reports demonstrate how bee colonies are dying throughout the year from various events. Most common issues come from parasitic Varroa destructor mite (main cause), queen behavior, and starvation. Beekeepers need to spend more time and resources to divide surviving bee colonies to replace the lost colonies.

Although colony death rates go up and down every year, the worrying part that Natialie Steinhauer, science coordinator of The Bee Informed, states is how there appears to be no rapid progression to reducing the losses. There are various research programs aimed to understand the managed honey bee colonies, such as treating bees from the parasitic varroa mite to increasing plants for essential nutrition to reducing the usage of pesticides that harm bees. So, while beekeepers are changing their methods to reduce honey bee colony losses, there’s a long way to go until science catches up with bee’s summers.

Texas Bee Apiary

Bee Apiary 101: Life of a Beekeeper

March 8, 2021 Beekeeping

When you order an eco-friendly bee removal on your property, your primary concern is getting the bees off your land. However, we think it is vital for you as a consumer to understand the actual result of your bee removal via beekeeper, the bee apiary.

You know what the term eco-friendly means. However, once you learn about the apiary and how innovative a tool it is, you will be more prone to working with someone who practices live bee removal instead of the standard extermination.

What is a Bee Apiary?

Also known as a bee yard, an apiary is where collected beehives and honey bees are kept. You may have seen photos or videos somewhere of open land with large boxes located on them that contain live bees. These are apiaries and are a beekeeper’s primary tool for remaining eco-friendly and keeping bees alive and happy while producing essentials like wax and honey.

Who Uses Bee Apiaries?

From beekeepers to farmers, apiaries are popular ways to help boost industry and preserve bees’ lives as a species. Every apiary has its use; it all just depends on the person managing the bee yard. Apiaries can take beneficial production directions in the form of:

  • Wax Production,
  • Honey Production,
  • Honey Bee Preservation,
  • And Pollination.

Knowing how the different apiaries are beneficial to the environment is essential for anyone to understand, not just beekeepers that love honey bees.

How Does a Bee Apiary Work?

When you discover a beehive on your property and call your local bee removal expert, your goal is to be rid of these “pests.” By working with a bee removal service and specializes in beekeeping and bee relocation, you are promoting the use of bee apiaries and safe economic practices.

A company like Bee Safe Bee removal will remove unwanted swarms and hives and put them in a bee apiary. Here, the bees will have the freedom to survive and thrive. The best part about this type of swarm removal is that it is safe for all parties involved, even the bees. There are no harmful chemicals used in this method.

Once at the apiary location, the bees are used for one of the many production specialties that the beekeeper specializes in.

Where Can You Find Bee Apiaries?

Suppose you are a novice beekeeper or are curious about where apiaries can be located. In that case, some requirements need to be followed when selecting a location for the apiary.

Dry Location

First off, the location should be dry. Wetlands and swampy areas create lots of moisture that delays the development of the hive and production.

Protect Your Bees From Wind

Your location may be dry but consider what weather elements could affect the bees in your apiary. The main concern is the wind. Windy areas create problems in hive development and the development of bee families as a whole. If you have no natural barriers, create your walls with:

  • High Fencing,
  • Windbreaks,
  • Trees,
  • And Tall Shrubs.

Avoid Strong Shading

Although you may think providing shade is a high priority, it delays bees’ flight as they go about their routine in the mornings. Also, afternoon shadows can negatively impact the flight time of bees. The ideal land is an exact location where bees have moderate shade to keep hives from overheating.

Bee Extermination vs Removal

3 Reasons to Choose Bee Removal Over Extermination

March 1, 2021 Bee Hive Removal, Beekeeping

Summer is here in Texas, and it is time for bees to become unwanted guests in the homes of many homeowners. When dealing with bee removal, there seem to be two options available to people wanting bees off of their property:

Both of these methods are essentially effective, but one of them has some more positive repercussions than the other.

1. Bees Are Important to the Environment

We’ve all heard the news that bees are dying off, which is terrible because they are vital to the environment. The importance of bees couldn’t be more accurate. Not only are bees excellent sources for natural honey and the pollination of our necessary food supplies, but they also add importance in other areas that include:

  • The pollination of the majority of flowering plants on Earth
  • The survival of the almond population
  • And considerable contributions to the beautiful floral views that so many people enjoy

Your favorite fruits and flowers depend on the survival of this population. By opting to work with a beekeeper for bee removal, you choose to help the environment sustain.

2. Extermination Chemicals Affect More Than the Bees Involved

Yes, extermination chemicals will get rid of your bee problem. However, these materials’ lingering effects ultimately impact more than just the bees you’re trying to exterminate. Bee removal through extermination can pose some serious health risks for you, your children, and even your pets. Even though extermination chemicals only linger for a few hours after use, this is still enough time to create a significant problem for family members in the home.

Some pest control companies may promote that they use safe products, but taking their word for it runs the risk of exposing your family that can cause eventual cancer, growth issues, and reproductive problems.

Unsafe extermination chemicals also have been found to have long-term effects that lead to diseases like:

  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Congenital disabilities

It has been seen in the past that contaminants found in these chemicals have been discovered in newborns’ blood. Face the facts; no bee problem is worth putting your family at such a risk.

3. Bee Removal Does Not Cause Environmental Damage

Environmental preservation is essential these days, and even something as simple as opting for beekeepers during bee removal can make a difference. A beekeeper’s primary goal is to keep the bees alive and allow them to thrive by performing their natural habits. When you hire a beekeeper for natural bee removal, you ensure that the bees are safely removed from your property in an eco-friendly manner.

Bee Safe Bee Removal Relocates Your Hives with Eco-friendly Methods

Everyone wants to enjoy their summer, and a summer full of bees isn’t the preferred option. However, when you are ready for a bee removal on your current property, think about the environmental impact on the summers to come. Contact Bee Safe Bee Removal for a guaranteed eco-friendly bee removal method via beekeepers. We value your comfort and the lives of our pollinating friends and look forward to servicing your issue.

3 Benefits to Having a Beekeeper Remove Bees

December 1, 2020 Beekeeping

Beehives can be beautiful yet dangerous things. While most people are happy with the honey that bees produce, they usually don’t want a hive on their property. Bee removal is a popular service during a Texas spring. If you notice a hive forming on your property, don’t pick up the phone to call an exterminator. You want a professional that can handle the job the right way. You want to call a beekeeper.

1. Beekeepers Know Their Business

You may look at a bee and think you know what you are dealing with. However, not all bees are the same. Many have specific traits that, when understood, will help aid in successful bee removal. By working with a professional beekeeper, you will have someone who understands the ins-and-outs of all different types of bees.

A beekeeper will quickly be able to determine what bees you have on your property, what their hive mentality is, and how to safely and rapidly remove them from your home.

2. Eco-Friendly Bee Removal

Bees are an essential part of our ecosystem. Therefore, removing them in a safe and eco-friendly way is the best route to take. If you find that you have bees on your property, please, don’t go for the bug spray. Get in touch with a local beekeeper and let them come out to assess your infestation.

A beekeeper will approach the situation with the professional’s knowledge and remove the live bees from your home.

3. Beekeepers Keep You Safe

DIY bee removal is never an excellent idea. Most people look at bees on their property and automatically assume that all bees function the same. In this case, most people would be wrong. Not all bees sting just once. Some can sting multiple times and release large amounts of venom with each sting. If you are allergic, DIY bee removal is hazardous.

A beekeeper will not only be able to remove or exterminate the bees on your property safely, but they will also be able to give you crucial information about the bees just in case a hive forms again in the coming seasons. A beekeeper’s goal is to keep both the bees and the client safe.

Bee Safe Bee Removal is a Team of Beekeepers That Take Care of Your Hive

DIY methods and poisons can be effective for removing a hive, but removal by a beekeeper is 100 percent proven to get the job done right. At Bee Safe Bee Removal, we believe in getting rid of your hive in the safest and most eco-friendly way possible.
