Now Accepting Sponsor A Hive Applications For 2020!

We are now accepting applications for our 2020 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!

Bees marching from a swarm catch box into their new 10 frame hive. This colony has lived in the catch box for several months. We transferred their handy work into the new box and they walked right in.

Photos from this Sunday's hive removal. This house will be burned down via controlled burn this week. I don't like to remove bees this close to fall, but the alternative was a death sentence by fire. Things went pretty smoothly minus my bees attempting to rob the new colony as soon as it arrived in the yard. Video coming soon! ...

Picked up this swarm trap last night. Thankfully, these ladies have been in here for months, so they have a big head start on winter prep. This location has paid off for three years in a row now! We'll take them back to the apiary and transfer them into a standard Langstroth hive to take them the rest of the way into winter.

They're coming in loaded with pollen this morning. The goldenrod has started blooming along the roadsides. Fall is almost here!

The bees removed from the gable of the brick house are doing great. The queen has a strong brood nest going and they're packing away nectar. I predict they'll be ready for the cold weather months ahead.
