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!

I made the mistake of carrying a bottle of Swarm Commander in the pocket of my bee jacket. The elastic at the bottom is stretched out and they were crawling up my shirt. I had to get creative with my belt to keep them out....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

These ladies were ready for some summer fun, so they moved into this tiki bar. Unfortunately they were not invited to the party and the bar owner had me ask them politely to leave. They were nesting inside the wall of the bar where the electrical wiring was hidden and had built comb from the underside of the bar top all the way to the ground. I used my smoker to run them up onto the bar top, removed the comb from the wall of the bar and lured them into this box using some of their brood comb. Once the queen made an appearance I caged her and added her to the box as well. Back at the apiary I framed up what brood comb I could and transferred them into a wooden hive box.....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

Bees in a chicken house wall! Unfortunately, I didn't get any video of me cutting the comb out of the walls, but surrounding trees and lack of a helper made it impossible to get a decent angle that wasn't just my back. This definitely outlines my method of removing a hive and reintroducing them to their comb at the apiary. Enjoy! ...

Is it hot enough for ya? How do bees keep cool on hot days? They hang out on the outside of the hive. This also helps reduce the temperature inside the hive by removing body heat and allowing more airflow to pass through. ....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

Our next door neighbor has happily accepted her role as "bee waterer" the past few seasons. The birds and bees share these with no issues. We're so glad our neighbors love bees as much as we do. ...#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...
