Qué harás

Your interactive experience with a bee colony will begin with an overview of the life of a bee and the different jobs a bee does as they mature. Learn the parts of the hive.
You’ll see an empty hive and learn how to hold a frame (without squishing the bees -they don’t like that).

We’ll observe a hive (from a distance), and get suited up. Light a smoker. Do a safety check, and then approach the hive.

At the hive you’ll see and feel the power of propolis (a supplement for people as well as) -- its the glue bees use to seal up the hive.

We’ll lift the lid and go inside.
For some, that’s might be as far as they want to go. But, if you want to see more, we will do a complete hive inspection. Pull each of the frames to see how the bees create honey and keep the colony alive.

You’ll see open “wet cells” of nectar that are still in the process of transforming into honey. You’ll see capped honey (ready for harvest), tiny freshly laid eggs and all the stages of bee development ( larvae, caped brood, and newly emerging “baby bees”).

I’ll show you how beekeepers help control pests (other insects and diseases) and keep the bees healthy so they can do their important work.

You’ll hold frames of bees and feel the weight of a full frame of honey in comparison to a frame of bees.

There’s always time for selfies!

You’ll sample honey and enjoy a cold beverage!

Bee a Keeper.

I love bees.
I love to try to help them love me back.
As a backyard beekeeper it’s always exciting to interact with each colony and observe behavioral differences. Everyday I learn from these amazing creatures.

I'm also a full time educator (and a registered beekeeper with the State of Florida Agriculture Department).

Let’s enjoy a unique exBEErience as we all BEEcome keepers.

Donde estarás

Backyard beekeeping is becoming a big thing. Bees in urban settings are exposed to less pesticides and a wide variety of food sources. Working next to the chickens, we will be in the backyard apiary.

Experience times are flexible. Dates are also flexible. Each experience is limited to 6 guests. Everyone gets up close.

If you have a larger party - we can discuss some workable options.

-->Please note: it can get VERY HOT in the summer time

David was incredible nice and knowledgeable and I had a great time with the bees although I was initially nervous about the whole ordeal. The honey tasting was wonderful as well and I got to hear all about bees and their livelihood from David and his short presentation. The bee suits he provided were sturdy and I never felt at danger during the experience. Definitely recommend it to anyone in St. Petersburg

What a great time. We absolutely love the bee experience. I am quite sure we will have bee hives in our back yard this summer. Thank you David. We had a lot of fun and thank you for sharing your passion for the bees!

If you are looking for a unique experience you’ll want to tell all your friends about, look no further. David’s urban garden is the perfect spot to immerse yourself in the secret life of bees. This experience had everything I wanted - a truly immersive, hands-on experience with a knowledgeable guide, fun with friends, and a sweet cocktail ending. David’s passion for his bees was obvious and he answered the many, many questions I had with patience and expertise. David was friendly and went out of his way to make this a great adventure. Everybody visits the beach on their vacation, but this experience will make for much better memories and stories to tell. All beehives matter!

This experience was my first Airbnb experience and definitely set the bar for anything we try in the future. David was well knowledged and started our experience by teaching us about the bees we would be seeing and explaining in depth what we would be doing. We then “suited up” and dove in! We spent the next hour or so exploring the hives and interacting with the bees. The up close experience was so much more than I was expecting. Even more unexpected, David took photos of all of us interacting so we didn’t have to stop what we were doing and try to photograph the moment. Our focus was able to be strictly on the bees, which allowed us to even see the ever elusive queen bee! We were able to handle them as much as we wanted while we were in the hive. My comfort level with bees went from none to “let’s get our own!” Once we wrapped up, David brought us back in for some honey samples, a delicious honey infused drink, and capped our time together off with an adorable bottle of his honey. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, no matter their comfort level!

David was welcoming and super informative. I really felt like I walked away with a lot of knowledge and I really enjoyed the time we spent with the bees. I would definitely recommend this exbeerience!
