The Best Bees Company is a full-service beekeeping operation. We install and manage beehives for residences and businesses in Pittsburgh and select markets nationwide.

Extending our mission to Pittsburgh in 2018, we’ve swiftly made strides to bolster bee populations and pollinate spaces such as Nova Place on the northside and BNY Mellon downtown.

Pittsburgh is Bee Friendly

Pittsburgh is a great environment for bees! With surprisingly diverse flora, our Pittsburgh beehives produce more honey and live longer.

Honeybees are a great match for the black and gold city. Like many modern cities, Pittsburgh has made great strides to become more a sustainable urban environment. Urban farms and LEED-certified buildings are great hosts for Pittsburgh beehives.

Envisioning Pittsburgh
at its best for bees

As leading beekeepers, we do more than service beehives, we gather data that’s helping us to positively affect the health of Pittsburgh’s bees. Our beekeepers closely observe beehive conditions throughout the season, and through DNA analysis of honey, give us valuable information on plant diversity, environmental conditions, and pesticide exposure. Our analysis of local honey has shown us that urban environments include eight times more flowering plant species than suburban and rural areas and that this is a key factor in bee health in Pittsburgh.
