Depending on the variety of crop, growers requires from one to six colonies per acre. By using our bees to pollinate their fields, growers can usually expect up to 25-50% more fruit. We want to assure growers of a reliable source of bees at a reasonable cost. We maximize the pollination process of your crops by providing healthy, strong, and active hives at the beginning of the bloom. Hives are placed throughout your orchards/fields in a pattern that assures the maximum distribution of pollinating bees. We provide two story “double deep” quality beehives. We pre-inspect the hives in our holding yards to help insure strength and quality. We provide a computer-generated topographic map to the grower showing placements of hives before moving bees into the fields. We inspect the hives in the orchard/field as necessary and we always have access to extra hives for emergencies.
We provide pollination services both for farmers who are experienced with using honeybees and for farmers who may never have used honeybees in the past. We would love to talk with you and explain how crop pollination will both increase your yields and produce a better quality crop. We are available to meet with you throughout the year to discuss placement of hives and answer any questions you may have pertaining to the use of bees for pollination.
Common Pollination needs in SC are for: apples, watermelons, squash, blue berries, pumpkins and strawberries
