About Best Bees Company
The Best Bees Company, found online at BestBees.com, is a new full service beekeeping operation whose mission is to expand the honey bee population while improving the overall health and safety of bees nationwide.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the Best Bees Company will deliver, install, and manage beehives for both residential and business clients in eight metropolitan areas across the country, including Boston, New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Their website says that each hive they install will be treated like a data point that contributes information to their nonprofit organization in order to analyze and improve bee health.
Customers who choose to work with this company will have all the necessary equipment shipped to their home or business where they will install the honey bee colony. The Best Bees Company’s own beekeepers will visit the colony on a routine basis, which is generally about once a month. You will always be notified ahead of time.
Their beekeepers will take action for swarm prevention, disease management, feedings if necessary, and adding or removing equipment as needed to accommodate the seasonal variance in colony size.
They will also take care of honey harvesting, whether you choose to harvest in your own frames or choose to pay to have them harvest the honey for you. They promise they will always ensure that your honey will remain separate from others, and be returned to you in labeled jars.
The Best Bees Company says that since they provide their services to residential, non-profit, and commercial clients in such a wide variety of regional areas across the country, the reality is that their pricing will vary based on the individual customer.
That being said, they do mention that their standard all-inclusive beekeeping services begin at $1,000 per hive per calendar year for residential clients who are close to their base of operations and they will top out at $2,500 per hive per calendar year for commercial clients high insurance requirements.
Their website says that this company also offers a-la-carte pricing which starts at $150 per hour for special events, beekeeping mentoring, and more, up to $450 for complete beehive sets.
Because this company provides such a specific service, they do not appear to have a standard Refund Policy available for their customers. Instead, prospective clients will want to speak with their company about what policies are in place for customers who realize that they will not be able to carry out the full year of service and will need to have the bee hive removed.
