Adopt a Hive Save the Bees || Receive an adoption certificate, a honeybee information packet, 3 hive updates, entered in a drawing with the other half share holder for the honor of naming the queen, and a gift box of beehive products.
Bee Lovely Botanicals™ is a family run honey bee business. We love our bees, and our customers, so we treat our hives naturally, with integrated pest management techniques, and essential oils, according to CNG protocols.
Our hives are located in the beautiful wooded countryside of Unionville, Michigan, near Saginaw Bay. Our bees forage on trees and wildflower, such as basswood. black locust, star thistle, sumac and wild berries.
As you probably know, honeybees have been in trouble in the US. Even though the total number of hives worldwide has grown, bee populations in the US are still struggling. Our Adopt a Hive Save the Bees program gives you an opportunity to support honeybees kept with safe, natural treatments.
If you clicked on this link, you probably also already know that honeybees are responsible for pollination of many of our country’s fruits and vegetables. Do you like almonds or apples, thank a bee. How about a cucumber or a cranberry, tell a bee you appreciate them. One way to support honeybees is to adopt one of our hives. We realize that not everyone that is concerned for the health of honeybees has the ability or desire to raise them themselves.
We’re happy to bridge the gap between you, and our adorable little stinging friends. When you adopt one of our hives, you will receive a packet of information detailing what you can do in your own yard to help honeybees, as well as some interesting facts about these darling little bugs, and an adoption certificate. We also give 2 periodic updates on your hive sharing photos and/or videos. On top of that you will be entered into a drawing to get the high honor of naming Her Majesty, the Queen of your hive.
