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!

Entrance reducers are on, screened bottom boards are closed and all of our sponsored hives have returned to the apiary to spend the winter. The season is winding down as the cooler temperatures move in. We'll give the bees everything they need to survive the cold seasons ahead. The rest is up to them.

I finally got this video edited and posted from our removal on September 15th. These bees were living between the first and second story of a farmhouse in Somerset County. The land owners were having the house burned down by the local fire department so they can build a new home, but didn't want the bees to die in the fire. We came in to reloate the bees to give them the best chance of survival this winter.

September is a rough time to relocate bees due to winter prep and the potential for robbers. At the end of the video you'll see some of the struggles we had introducing them into the bee yard.

Some unsuspecting tree cutters found these ladies while clearing a lot on Virginia's Eastern Shore. We were called in to safely transfer the bees from the tree to a managed hive, where they'll have their best chance of winter survival this late in the season. We've given them some food and a place to live and will definitely do everything we can to get them through the cold months to come. ...

She has definitely been through some trauma, but she survived both the impact of the tree hitting the ground and the onslaught of robbing that followed. We'll give this little lady all the help we can to get her colony back to good before the winter weather arrives.

Bee rescue! Taking care of a fallen bee tree this morning. They've definitely suffered a bit, but the queen and a good number of bees survived the impact. They'll need a lot of help, but we'll do everything we can to get them though the winter.

The hives in our yard have started evicting drones for the season. The muscle is on duty out front.

Soon we will begin the tedious process of filling honey jars, but it's oh so worth it.
