Answers to your questions
  • What insurance coverage do you offer?

    We offer all of our clients complete liability insurance including general commercial liability, automobile liability, umbrella liability, and workers compensation and employers liability.

  • Is urban beekeeping safe?

    Yes! At Alvéole, we work with a special breed of Italian honey bees selected for their docility. Honey bees are gentle creatures who (almost) never sting without reason. Unless they feel threatened, bees have no motivation to sting – in fact, once they sting, they lose their stinger along with a part of their abdomen, and die.

    Wild bees are as peaceful as honey bees. They technically can sting, but they don’t. Docile and non-territorial, they’re extremely gentle. Unless they’re being touched, they simply go about their business.

    Of course, beekeeping comes with additional responsibilities when practiced in the city. Choosing a good supplier is key – here’s what to look for when choosing an urban beekeeping partner.

  • How do I know if my building is a suitable place to install a beehive?

    We’re able to find a suitable location in 98% of cases. If you have doubts, we will perform a site assessment to confirm if your location is a safe and secure place for a hive.

  • Do tenants or employees need to be able to access the hive installation site?

    Not necessarily. All packages include remote or in-person workshops to form a connection between people and the bees, as well as access to an online, public-facing platform to share the project with your community.

    Of course, when the hive is accessible, people are welcome to observe their beekeeper during hive inspections.

  • What safety certifications do the beekeepers have?

    In addition to rigorous beekeeping training, our beekeepers have completed training in working at heights, working in heat, working alone, first aid/CPR and anaphylaxis, emergency response and fire prevention.
