We save bees free and resettle them into safe habitats.
We need to save the bees because of the critical role they play in our ecosystem. Their nectar and pollen may not be as available as a food source for bees and plants may be deprived of bee pollination. Pesticide use has had an adverse effect on bee populations.
Please help us by helping all of us, because our food resources depend on bees. No bees, no food, no life!
Your support can save bees!
BEE healthy & happy!

Honey is a sweet, viscous food substance made by honey bees and some related insects. Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions of plants or from secretions of other insects, by regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation. Bees store honey in wax structures called honeycombs.
Useful properties of honey
- regulates metabolic processes
- increases immunity
- honey improves blood composition
- helps to cope with insomnia
- gives energy to the body, restores strength
Making honey is a complex and unique process and is produced in several stages
Honey is a sweet syrupy substance produced by honeybees from the nectar of flowers and used by humans as a sweetener and a spread. Honey is comprised of 17-20% water, 76-80% glucose, and fructose, pollen, wax, and mineral salts. Its composition and color is dependent upon the type of flower that supplies the nectar. For example, alfalfa and clover produce white honey, heather a reddish-brown, lavender an amber hue, and acacia and sainfoin a straw color.
01. Flowers produce nectar and attract our bees
Flowers produce nectar as a reward for pollination, the process of transferring pollen from flower to flower. Many flowers need pollen to reproduce. However, because plants are immobile they need help with pollen transfer. An animal that transfers pollen from flower to flower is called a pollinator.
02. Bees collect the nectar and carry it to the beehive
Bees collect nectar from flowers. Nectar is the sweet liquid that entices the bees to the flower. The bees climb onto or into the flower and suck up the nectar with their straw-like mouth and collect it in a little sac called a crop. They also collect pollen on their legs.
03. Bees seal cells with wax and honey ripens
Beeswax (cera alba) is a natural wax produced by honey bees of the genus Apis. The wax is formed into scales by eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments of worker bees, which discard it in or at the hive. The hive workers collect and use it to form cells for honey storage and larval and pupal protection within the beehive.
04. We collect the product and transfer it to the packaging
Because of its acidity, honey reacts with steel, iron, aluminum, galvanized metal, copper, tin, and more. Besides producing toxins, this can also affect taste and color. Although some are worse than others, steel and iron are considered especially bad for honey storage because they can rust and ruin honey.
Excellence at its best! We had a huge beehive in a tree of our house. I called Beeswild on a Sunday morning and they were working, they helped me that same day at no cost. Beeswild came to do the job and they saved the bees. A few days later I got some pictures of the beehive! Happy bees! Very nice people, professional and you could feel the do it with passion. The did not ask for payment and I donated them $200! A+++!
Hi Beeswild! You would get 10 stars if it was an option! I was beyond impressed with their quick response, knowledge, dedication, and honesty. Not wanting me to spend my hard-earned money if it wasn’t necessary. You must’ve heard the fear in my voice and came here the same day. My special thank you, a 150 dollar donation for new apiaries!🙂 Thank you for saving me!
I called them on Saturday and they were at my home within an hour. Our jab required two technicians, he called for backup. Within 2-3 hours of my initial phone call, I had for sections of my roof opened and all the bee hives were removed. And this was without paying a penny yet! They do it for free! I cannot express how happy I am with Beeswild! Very professional and dedicated saving bees! I donated 50 dollars and again thank you!
Fast, efficient, professional, highly dedicated, I called Beeswild because of a recommendation and the great reviews. When I called, I was told all about how they remove bees and why it is necessary to remove the beehive too and alive! I made an appointment for the next day. Beeswild called me and they arrived 45 minutes later. They accessed the situation as we talked about how wonderful bees are….except when they make their home right next to my front door! So, unfortunately, since they would have to break into my wall, the hive would get contaminated with concrete and the bees would die. They reluctantly explained that the best method to shift them naturally by installing a special box near to them. It took 12 days and they all moved into that box. They are really nice as they talked about their love for nature and how I could make a beeswax candle. They cleaned up and flew off! My cost? Nothing, I made a donation and they were happy!
Professional, great service, showed up when they said they would, and advised us how to behave with bees. This morning was my first, and hopefully last, experience with a swarm of bees literally moving in to just outside our front door. Beeswild was just what we needed and squeezed us in on a Good Friday. I recommend them without hesitation.
It could not have been better. Beeswild arrived on time & explained what they would do & asked if we wanted them to proceed. They then proceeded to find, remove & treat the area where the bees had built their hive. Following the removal, they met with us to explain exactly what had been done, & what would happen over the next several days. They were outstanding. It is no wonder that Beeswild is so highly recommended and rated. Reinold, we thank you for being the source for us of Beeswild, your recommendation. Offers we received ranged from $550 to $1,100, Beeswild did it for $0. They even did not ask for payment. I donated $300 for the great cause of saving bees.
