Sponsor A Hive Applications For 2021!

We are now accepting applications for our 2021 Sponsor A Hive Program!  If you’re interested in hosting a bee hive on your property next season, this is the program for you.  For a nominal fee, you get your very own hive placed on your property from April through August, we do all of the maintenance and you get to keep some of the honey! 

For full details and to fill out an application, visit our APPLICATION PAGE.

Welcome to Victory Garden Apiary, located on the former Reynolds Victory Garden in beautiful Princess Anne, MD.  Our number one goal is preservation of the honeybee colonies in our area and public education on honeybees.  If you have honeybees on your property and need them safely removed, you’ve come to the right place!  We also sell honeybee colonies, honey, beeswax and bee products to support our cause.  Future plans include guided apiary tours and possibly a small honey tasting area.  If you’re interested in checking us out, please contact us for information!

Swarm season is right around the corner! In the spring, honeybee hives divide into two or more colonies. This allows them to not only reproduce on the individual level, but also on a colony level. A portion of the population leaves with the original queen, leaving behind developing queens, one of which will take over as the egg layer for the original hive. Along the way, the swarming bees will stop to rest while scout bees look for places to build a new home. They sometimes choose the strangest places to stop. These bees are generally not aggressive since they have no nest to defend. If you see a large cluster of bees, call a local beekeeper. DO NOT call an exterminator, spray the bees with poison or douse them with a hose. Generally, the bees will move on within a few hours to a few days, but a beekeeper will ensure the bees will not end up in someone's walls or other less than desirable locations. Victory Garden Apiary is experienced with swarm relocation and happy to help with swarms on the lower shore. ...

The sun came out today and warmed the hives. The bees took advantage of the mild temperatures to perform their cleansing flights, clean junk out of the hive and even do a little foraging. So far so good this winter. We're ready for spring!...#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

With the cold snap on the way, we checked in on our bees that have been feeding on the extra sugar we provided, just to be sure they have enough. These ladies were a little cranky last time I checked on them, so their sugar ended up on top of the inner cover. This isn't ideal, so today we added sugar under the cover so they don't have to break cluster and can stay as warm as possible while feeding. ....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...
