Whether you need a new hive tool for today, or your looking to purchase a beginner beekeeping kit for next season, we have what you need in stock and ready to go.
Our goal is to make beekeeping an accessible hobby that isn’t too hard on your wallet. We can provide you with all the supplies you need to get started and the knowledge and support to keep your bees alive.
We carry locally made products made right here in Vancouver and across Canada, Including:
The great thing is, we offer competitive pricing, so you don’t need to shop around. If we don’t have the item you want let us know, and we can get it for you. We love helping people, and even more so, we love making good people into great Beekeepers. Our Passion is bees and it shows.
We specialize in mail orders, so whether you live in Vancouver or Kelowna, we can get it to you when you need it.
We teach a variety of bee related classes, all focused on making you understand your new hobby as thoroughly as possible. We offer 2 day weekend classes, 3 day split classes, overnight dinner packages, wintering wrap up seminars and beeswax courses. We also offer private beekeeping at our yard, or at yours. Perfect for those that don’t have time for a full weekend course, or if your unsure what’s going on in your hive, we can come to your home and go through it with you.
Check out our beekeeping and bee related course page on a regular basis, we will be filling it with exciting classes that keep you learning and expanding your knowledge of the hive.
Look no further, we offer just what you need. In the early spring we bring in New Zealand Arataki packaged bees and queens, then in the late spring we offer locally produced nucs. Throughout the summer we are the place to look for a constant source of local queens. We won’t sell anything we don’t love.
Stay on top of what's happening at Urban Bee Supplies, including seasonal sales, package and nuc availability, queen stock, new products. With every mail out you will get a Seasonal Tip, perfect for new beekeepers, or those that need a little reminder every now and then!
Vancouver's biggest kept secret, Caspian Solution. An amazing pheromone based product that is fed to the bees throughout the season. Developed in Iran, Hossein Yeganehrad has brought it to Vancouver. Some of BC’s largest apiaries use this solution to build up their apiaries, and when a commercial beekeeper believes in a treatment that is non-medicinal it says something. We offer the solution on it’s own, or you can buy it as a kit. We offer recipes to make a single dose, or 100. To find out more about Caspian Solution and the benefits of using it, click here.
