How do I know I can keep bees?
We offer a free visit to see if you have a suitable site for a hive, discuss the various hive offerings available.
Will I feel pressured to sign a contract?
Often the pressure is the other way; clients want to start immediately! When you enter into a contract with us, we give you a 10 day cooling off period to remove any feeling of pressure. It’s a big decision and we don’t want to let the bees have any unnecessary disruption or disturbances.
I have to be in to give you access. Is this OK?
Beekeeping is very seasonal and very weather dependent. We would ideally like access at all times but we can discuss hive access arrangements during our initial visit.
Do any laws or licences apply to beekeeping?
There aren’t any specific laws. We will ask you to sign an Agreement and you will have time to read through this and ask questions. The Agreement is for the benefit of you, us, the bees and anyone else who may encounter them.
What do I do if somebody complains?
The best option is to talk with people and explain that you have expert assistance to minimise any risk and disturbance. It is rare for us to have to remove bees from a site because of complaints.
