Bees

Apiculture and bee ecology

I have a special interest in apiculture and the ecologies of honey bees and wild bees. My consulting and teaching address bee biology, health, and habitat requirements. I am also interested in work that improves landscape structure to provide better habitat for bees.

I regularly attend bee courses and conferences in Canada and the USA.  I am a member of the Nova Scotia Beekeepers Association, Eastern Apiculture Society, Halifax Honey Bee Society, and the American Apitherapy Society.

Honey bee hive consulting - Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia

Need some support for your honey bees?  I can provide “Live at your Hive” consulting for hives within 30 minutes of Halifax.  Visits could include:

  • initial yard assessments with recommendations for set-up
  • general assistance with technique and seasonal priorities
  • help with your nuc or package
  • disease identification and recommendations for treatment
  • help to diagnose a confusing colony

Sorry, I do not collect swarms.
