Welcome to Victory Garden Apiary, now located in beautiful Crisfield, MD.  Our number one goal is preservation of the honeybee colonies in our area and public education on honeybees.  We also occasionally 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!

Announcement:

Due to time and health constraints, we are no longer performing structural removals (also called cut-outs) beginning in 2023.  We are certainly able to offer advice and expertise, but we cannot perform these types of complex hive relocations going forward.  We will still offer swarm removal services.  The information on the “Bees In Structures Or Trees” section of this website is still relevant, no matter who performs your removal.

Today we helped a friend with her hives. She had a swarm move into the big purple hive this spring and it only had 9 frames in the upper deep box at the time. Naturally the bees filled it with comb. It was too soft to frame up and was luckily all honey. They were getting honey bound, so we pulled three frames of honey and replaced them with drawn comb. Everyone got an additional honey super to give them some room to grow. They looked super healthy! They'll definitely have plenty of stores the end of the season to get them though winter.....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

Last week we made our annual trek to The Salisbury School to visit the Pre-K classroom with our observation hive and teach them a little bit about honeybees. At this age, they always have such unexpected, sometimes even a bit amusing, questions. I usually get asked things like "Is there also a King Bee?" or "How many times have you been stung?". (Always lots of questions about stings) At the end of it all, however, they know bees are friends and an important part of our environment and agricultural system. See you next year Salisbury School! ... See MoreSee Less
