Butler Bees 

Bee & Swarm Removal
In 2010, Butler Bees  , Expanded our hives to cover other areas of fantastic foraging. Our bees still feed on wild flowers and clover in the valley below the ranch. But now we  have utilized other areas also.

 Butler Bees Honey was established 10 years ago on a ranch in the heart of the Flint Hills in Kansas. What began as a hobby, then traveled  through word of mouth  has grown into a booming  business. Today, Butler Bees sells fresh, natural honey to individuals, companies and patrons who  want the best.

We don’t normally get involved in politics. We’re just honey farmers, right? But recent events have us very worried. And not just for ourselves – for everyone.

 

In addition to producing honey and beeswax, bees pollinate the plants that produce fruits, vegetables and nuts worldwide. Unfortunately pesticide use, parasites and Colony Collapse Disorder have reduced the number of bees available to carry out this important function.

 

While the population has been dwindling for years, the bee shortage is reaching alarming proportions.  In fact, because bees are vital to 30% of the food supply, some experts predict a global food production crisis. It’s gotten so bad that farmers have started “renting” bees to pollinate their crops, paying beekeepers to put hives right on their farms.

 

Beekeepers like us have had to step up our annual investment, buying new queens and splitting our hives every year. The recent droughts have made it necessary to feed our bees when there’s not enough natural foliage for them to feed on.

 

Although the bee die-off remains a scientific mystery, everyone agrees – it’s an ominous sign of an ecosystem in distress. So if you have Bees that need to be saved please contact us and we will be happy to help them out.
