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.  

Get your bees from a reliable, dependable supplier.  Our stock is always fresh and we believe in all the products we sell, otherwise we wouldn’t sell them.

Packages, Nucs, Queens & Mason Bees

Mason Bees

We love our honey bees, but did you know that mason bees pollinate 60 times more efficiently than a honey bee…..It makes you wonder why more of us don’t keep them.

We carry locally raised mason bees, along with the best Mason Bee houses and Chalets a bee has ever seen.

Caspian Solution

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.
