Seattle is Bee Friendly

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

 

The city is very supportive of beekeeping.  Beekeeping is legal, and we have a vibrant urban farming community that wants more honeybees.

WE’RE LEARNING HOW TO IMPROVE BEE HEALTH IN SEATTLE

As leading beekeepers, we do more than service beehives, we gather data that’s helping us to positively affect the health of Seattle’s bees. Our beekeepers closely observe beehive conditions throughout the season, and through DNA analysis of honey from each beehive, 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 Seattle.
