RefuBEEs

At TreSargie Farm, we are a place of refuge for tens of thousands of bees. Our hive is thriving, and we’re hoping to have a nice crop of tasty honey this year.

We are always on the lookout for other refugee Bees (refuBees(!)), and will expand our apiary as the years pass, hoping to find bees that might otherwise be disposed of. We offer 5 star accommodation, regular checks, and lots of varied crops to taste, so if you know of a swarm that needs to be moved, please get in touch! If we can access the bees, we’ll take them away safely to live a full life in the countryside. Please call Dan on:  07916444709 anytime if you hear of a colony that needs to be moved, and we’ll do what we can.

The colony we’re currently housing was a swarm rescued from outside the A&E department at Treliske Hospital! We were called after a rogue swarm was clinging to a bush, using it as a scouting point before buzzing off to another stopoff, in search of a suitable permanent home. While they’re swarming, they’re actually quite friendly, although seeing thousands of bees out in the open can be a scary sight.  Please don’t hesitate to call us as soon as you see a swarm – they’re likely to move quickly from an exposed location, to a hard-to-reach place that we’ll struggle to get to, so the sooner, the better.
