At BackYardHive we are committed to information and hive technologies that encourage and enable backyard beekeepers to be successful.
Our primary focus is on improving bee ecology and beekeeping methods that respect the honeybee. Our hope is that by introducing new hobby beekeepers to the rewards of beekeeping that there will eventually be backyard beekeepers worldwide that will help bring back the feral bee population and improve the genetic diversity of the honeybees. This diversity is critically important to the survival of this most precious natural resource. Thank you for being a part of the solution and being a part of the growing community of backyard beekeepers we are helping to create at BackYardHive.com.
BackYardHive was founded by long time treatment-free Bee Guardian Corwin Bell. In 1995 Bell started keeping bees due to a long time fascination with this delicate pollinator. From the beginning Corwin always built his own hives which has lead him to gain a deep understanding of the interrelated nature of the colony of bees and the bee hive structure that best suits the bees ability to survive.
