For Our Hiveworld Customers

Hiveworld first started to deliver bees to our customers in 2006. Since then, we have successfully delivered thousands of packages and nucs throughout western Canada. Over the years we have delivered packages, nucs and starter hives to commercial beekeepers replacing losses and hobby and sideline beekeepers starting an alternate revenue stream.

As we have previously mentioned in our blog, Live Bees 2023, we will be supplying our customers with packages, nucs and starter hives for the coming 2023 year. Our packages will be coming from New Zealand with Carniolan queens. We have been able to reserve close to 8000 packages from our suppliers. The quantity and when we are able to bring to Canada will depend on flights and demand from our customers. With overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers in 2022 regarding our 5 frame Nucs we have 600 for purchase with plans to double our availability in 2024. 5 - Frame nucs are a great way to get into beekeeping or to make sure you start off your beekeeping season strong.

Aside from providing our customers with the best live bee products, we also offer equipment and beekeeping courses.

Beekeeping has picked up in popularity in recent years, and we at Hiveworld wanted to make sure that all new beekeepers started off on the right foot. In the beginning we had summer classes that our customers could attend and get certified within a couple of days. However due to COVID-19 we re-evaluated on how we could best reach our customers. We wanted to make sure that everyone could have access to our courses. We now offer our beekeeping courses through an online platform. Our course offers 16 modules that will  make you confident in Getting Started in Beekeeping. You can complete the course at your own pace and have lifetime access to it. Which means if you need to look up certain resources, diagrams, or just refresh your memory on what to do in the following season - it is right there at your fingertips.

With our Basics in Beekeeping course we also offer Hiveworld Hands-On. In this subscription you can join us for a live session through Youtube with one of our beekeepers. There we address what is happening during that particular week in beekeeping season. You are also welcome to ask our beekeeper any questions in regards to beekeeping. Here’s a video interview with one of our customers that has taken both our beekeeping courses and joins us for every Hands-On session.

We want all of our customers to enjoy beekeeping, to have a solid foundation and reliable source of knowledge. We look forward to meeting all new beekeepers and providing them with the right tools.

How to Wrap Your Hives for The Winter?
How to Wrap Your Hives for The Winter?

November 24, 2022

Hives can benefit from being wrapped to make it easier for the bees to stay warm during the winter. As we have mentioned before in our previous blog, no one solution will fit everyone's needs. You as the beekeeper will need to analyze and customize your approach to winter prep depending on your region and climate. For most of Western and Northern Canada beekeepers benefit from wrapping and insulating their hives as the drops in temperature can be quite significant. The colder it is outside the hive, the more energy the colony will need to expand to keep itself warm. More energy means more food will be consumed, which can raise the possibility that there will not be enough food stores to last through the winter.
