About Us

The Best Bees Company installs and maintains honeybee hives on commercial and residential properties in urban centers across the US. These hives serve as data points in our national network of data-yielding beehives — they're the foundation of our scientific research. Our mission is to improve bee health and expand the bee population.

Since 2010, we’ve made a tangible, positive impact on the environment, one beehive at a time. We promote a culture of inclusivity and environmental stewardship, and we are proud to be a Certified LGBT Business Enterprise®.

Why it Matters

Imagine A World Without Bees

Honeybees are vital pollinators, yet every year we lose nearly one-half of all beehives.

Our mission is to expand the bee population while improving the health of bees nationwide.


How We are Helping

Our beekeeping methodology controls for variability, ensuring the data we collect on each beehive is suitable for rigorous research. Our clientele includes corporations that want to activate sustainability in their business model, individuals who want to reinvigorate their local ecosystem from their own backyard, and property owners who want a turnkey way to put underutilized space to work for the greater good.

Scientific Beekeeping

Bees are critical for a strong food system, economic security, and environmental resiliency. Yet pollinator health continues to decline. Here is our approach to solving the crisis: 

The Best System The Best Process The Best Data
We created Bzzz, a proprietary hive management system, to ensure the health of each beehive was recorded and ready for research.Our beekeeping practices have been uniquely developed to control variables in our dataset. This ensures that what we record is reliable for ongoing research with our partners.Bzzz has tracked data points 
from over 50,000 hive visits— measuring population, queen health, honey sums, and disease and mite levels in thousands of beehives nationwide.

Our Research Partners

We share our data with the scientific community. Collectively, it’s used to understand trends, analyze what’s working and what isn’t, and create a barometer of environmental stability.
