Bee pre­pared with a new reg­istry

Canadian Wildlife - - DISPATCHES -

Got a bee prob­lem at your home or work­place? A new na­tional bee reg­istry might help you find a so­lu­tion that’s good for the planet and for your prop­erty val­ues. Launched by Abell Pest Con­trol in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Univer­sity of Guelph’s Honey Bee Re­search Cen­tre, the Cana­dian Pest Man­age­ment As­so­ci­a­tion and the Na­tional Pest Man­age­ment As­so­ci­a­tion, the on­line honey bee reg­istry will con­nect home­own­ers with bee­keep­ers. That way, the bees can be re­lo­cated to a safe new home rather than be killed.

“We’ve been work­ing qui­etly to de­velop a net­work of bee­keep­ers who can come and re­lo­cate swarms,” says Michael He­im­bach, Abell’s director of busi­ness de­vel­op­ment and mar­ket­ing. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit abell­saves­
