RAW HONEYHoney Extraction

This delicious and nutritious nectar is a sweetness few can resist! Aside from its common use as a sweetener, honey has many health benefits as well. Honey is  high in vitamin E. It helps the body replace tissue and promotes the growth of new skin. Honey has been used since ancient times to heal cuts, burns and skin ulcers. It reduces inflammation, swelling and pain. It contains hydrogen peroxide, which acts as an antibacterial. Nature’s own antibiotic medicine. For the bees, it is a carbohydrate – the energy that gets them throughout the day (hint, hint).

Queen Bee

Honeybees near orchardWe have honeybees in an apple orchard, that make a spring honey that is sweet and buttery tasting.  Blueberry and Cherry Blossom produce light but not very sweet honey.  The next crop the bees pollinate is blackberries, which is a hands down favorite! In Sebastopol, wildflower has the most floral honey taste. And there are so many more – wildflower, blackberry, star thistle, orange blossom, lavender, blueberry, apple blossom and clover.

Our honey is always raw and we are love for our customers to taste our fine selection.  If you are at a market please stop by just to see if we have added a special new honey, which we do from time to time!

We also prepare honey and propolis soaps, lipbutter, hand salves and our Foot Magic is antiseptic, antibiotic anti-fungal and antioxidant. Bees make propolis with these medicinal benefits and we use it to improve any product that we can. Our propolis tinctures are hand shaken daily and they take six months to infuse without using heat (which destroys all the good things!) beeswaxCandlesCandles from beeswax create such a fantastic smell, that they are a joy to just look at, in addition to burning. We specialize in hand-dipped pair and skinny dipped pair candles that burn extremely well and add such a warm glow to any environment. Nucs, which are half hives and queenbees are available only locally, at this time. As dedicated advocates of the honeybees, we are committed to education of the public, swarm removal services, starting new beekeepers and all things that are the honeybee. – Geof and Jackie Whitford live in Sonoma County.

Bee Extractions

There are two kinds of bee extractions. One is capturing a swarm of bees outside on a tree, fence or bush. The other is a wall extraction, where the bees have moved into a wall of your house, barn or garage.

Honeybee Swarms
If you have a cluster of bees on a tree, fence or wall, there are things the beekeeper needs to know:

  • What is the property address with cross streets?
  • What is the actual location of the swarm on the property? (Ten feet up in a tree?)
  • Are they really honeybees? If they come out of a hole in the ground, they are yellow jackets. If they are dull yellow, they might be honeybees. If they are in a mud nest or a paper cone, they aren’t honeybees!
  • How long have they been there?
  • How big is the swarm? Baseball, football, basketball sized?
  • Who is the contact person, and what is the phone number?
  • If you are lucky enough to have a cell phone take a picture or two (keep your own safety in mind!) and send it to the beekeeper.

What NOT to do

IMG_6565Don’t spray the bees with poison, water or anything! Do not try to interfere with the swarm. The swarm will hang there until the scout bees have found a suitable new home for them. This could be 2 hours or 2 weeks. If the bees just got there, their stomachs are full of honey. If they have been there several days, they are getting hungry and may be more aggressive. If the bees are not on your property, then you MUST have the ok of your neighbor and the beekeeper has to speak with them, before removing the bees.

Call Bloomfield Bees Honey for local bee swarm removal service or wall extractions.
