Eco Honeybees is a female owned bee and hive company serving Northern Virginia and the greater Metro DC area.
Eco Honeybees is committed to the conservation and re-population of our domestic Honeybee. Honeybees are considered to be the primary "natural" pollinators of our Nation's agricultural crops and play a critically important and unique role in our delicate ecosystem.
Currently, much of the nation's honeybee business is managed by commercial hive brokers, catering to large farms and nurseries. Many of the beekeepers are aging and the art of beekeeping is dwindling. It’s difficult for the average homeowner or gardener to break into the apiary hobby without a long learning curve and the constant risk of losing their investment and bee population due to pollution, colony collapse disorder or, simple inexperience. Eco HoneyBees takes a new direction in the bee world as our business focus is in serving as a one stop source for Honey Bees, Bee Supplies, Bee Hives and, affordable residential and commercial hive maintenance and beehive service contracts.
Gardentop Bar Hive For both our residential and commercial customers we make beekeeping enjoyable and easy by managing and maintaining your hives for you, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the benefits of your healthy hives and happy Honeybees! Each hive we build is custom made with an observation window that allows you to peek inside without disrupting the hive. You can witness the birth of a bee, watch the workers going about their business, and occasionally spot the Queen laying her eggs! There is nothing quite as relaxing as sitting in front of your beehive watching worker bees returning to their hive, sacks filled with fresh pollen, content with the knowledge that you are doing your small part in restoring nature's delicate balance while enjoying the personal benefits from your healthy hives.
Eco HoneyBees offers complete honeybee hives and apiary services to regional home and business owners.

Happy Spring, Fellow Bee Lovers! If you're not noticing activity around your hives when it is warm and sunny (we've found that 52 degrees is the magic number at our house)
