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

Our expert beekeepers are experienced in Seattle's unique climate, providing services in downtown Bellevue and the surrounding area. City bees forage and flourish from plant sources that tend to be more biodiverse and free from harmful pesticides.

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. Legal and in-demand, urban bees in Seattle take advantage of a plethora of parks providing unique and varied sources of food.

Envisioning Seattle
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 Seattle’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 Seattle.
