Installation criteria

A beehive can be installed on a roof, in a yard or on a balcony.

In all these cases, it is important to organise 3 meters of liberated space in front of the hive entrance to give the bees room to come and go as they please.

Accessories

Hive support
This is made to support your entire beehive. By keeping everything off of the ground, it prevents moisture (mold) and certain pests away from the hive.
Water feeder
Fill with water to assure that your bees have a consistent water supply on hand.
Honey extractor
This 2-frame extractor is incredibly durable and will last twice as long as those from China. Make sure to extract both sides of your frames of honey!
Frame holder
Place on the sides of your bee-boxes during inspections so that you may set down frames with ease, and without squishing any bees.
Smoker
Smoke is essential when manipulating a colony and directing bees. It allows us to work with ease on the hive, as it calms the bees.
Frame grip
The ideal tool if you aren’t quite comfortable with bees yet. It clamps down over the top bar and allows you to remove the frame easily.

Deposit

Nothing will be charged to your credit card at this time.

We’ve installed all our beehives for this season, but you can now reserve your hive for spring 2018. Please note the prices and types of services will be modified for the 2018 season. An Alvéole beekeeper will be in touch with you this fall to approve your beehive location, answer any questions you may have and go over the details of our service. You’ll be able to proceed with billing once your request is approved. Until then, please feel free to contact us at info@alveole.buzz.
