Bee a Solution

Background

Honeybees have been declining at rapid rates around the world. According to the USDA’s annual Honey Bee Colonies report, over 3 million colonies have been lost in the United States alone since 2015. This decline has a huge impact on our food supply as bees are a major pollinator for many crops. As a response to this problem, Bee a Solution was created.

Project

Bee a Solution is a commercial apiary that produces high quality honeybee colonies for pollination, resale, and honey production through a proprietary and proven all-natural beekeeping process. The Bee a Solution team is made up of experts in both business and agricultural who bring the knowledge needed for this business to thrive. They are committed to growing the honeybee population through research and development. Bee a Solution’s mission is to be the solution to the threatened honeybee population through actively contributing in the apiculture industry by creating stationary pollinator habitats, migrating colonies for pollination, and sustainably producing honey for sale. Their vision is to be a high-quality apiary leading the beekeeping industry into sustainable, natural, and effective practices that protect and ensure the honeybee population for generations.

Community Impact

Honeybees are directly linked to the world’s food supply and floral ecosystem giving them a key role in supporting our everyday life. An improvement to the overall health, quantity, and sustainability of the honeybee population would touch every corner of the world. Honeybees are especially beneficial for farmers because as the health of the honeybee population increases, so does the agricultural yield. In a typical commercial apiary, the beekeeper will lose anywhere from 20%-50% of his colonies due to health stressors (mites, wax moths, hive beetles, etc). They rely on their other percentage of bees to be strong enough to be split into two colonies in order to make up for the loss. However, Bee a Solution’s boxes have seen a 0% mortality rate over the last 4 years, making them an economical and sustainable option for growers.
