Help me build a better web-site your comments are important to me if you find mistakes or information that can be improved or changed. Feel free to e-mail your comments to greg@dakotabees.com . My goal is to have an educational web-site that beekeepers can use as a referance.

Become a hive host I deal with a lot of beehive removals from homes and buisnesses I am always looking for community gardens willing to host bee hives. I place the bees at your community garden I maintain the hives for pollination. Hive hosts sometimes help with feeding bees and reporting their observations on bee activity. The link below is from one of my hive hosts Arvada Colorado.

We also promote the keeping of mason bees, leafcutter bees and bumblebees native to Colorado by providing bee habitat a great alternative for pollination of back yard gardens. You can help our native bees out by planting bee friendly plants that flower at different times through out the spring, summer and fall.

The number of hives in the United States is now at its lowest point in the past 50 years. Winter loss survey from the USDA reports lower losses for the 2011 2012 season. http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/pr/2012/120531.htm
