Thanks for signing up for our beehive tour! We look forward to teaching you all about bees.

After the beekeeping portion of the tour, we will do an informal honey tasting of honey from our own bees made in different parts of San Diego. You will also have the opportunity to buy some jars and since we only sell at educational events like this one, it is a good time to stock up! Honey is the only food on Earth that doesn’t spoil.

We will be meeting at a private residence in either the North Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego or in National City.  Please check your email for the address.  If you are late or lost, or can’t find the address please call or text Tim (831) 295-1625 or Hilary (619) 921-8189.

We only wait 10 minutes past the start time for late comers so, please be respectful of everyone’s time and try to be punctual! Remmeber that traffic can be heavy on weekends especially if you are coming from LA area.

 What to Wear: 
-Comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Ideally, taller shoes that cover your ankles, if you do not have shoes like this, bring a pair of extra socks.

 -If you have long hair, make sure you bring a hair tie / headband. You will not be able to touch your face to move hair out of your eyes once you are in the bee suit.

 -Shorts and t-shirts are okay. You don’t have to wear long pants or long sleeves and since it can get hot in the bee suit, it’s best not to. However, if you are tall and your shoes do not cover your ankle, it’s best to wear pants. In case the legs of the bee suit are short on you.

 What Else to Bring: 
-Bring gloves if you have them. You should bring gloves that are not dark in color and that are made from a thick material. Leather gardening gloves and dish gloves work well. However, we will also have gloves you can borrow.

 -You may also want to bring your camera. Photography is welcome!

 Important Info: 
-There may not be bathroom available on-site. If you have a long drive to get to us, please budget to have extra time to stop at a gas station or other facility to use their restroom before the tour.

-There may also be a steep hill with no railing we need to walk down to get to the bees. If you think you will have problems with this, please let us know in advance.

 -Please be sure not to block any of the neighbor’s driveways when you park.

 -Bees don’t like the smell of bananas so, avoid eating those for breakfast.

 – Bees don’t like strong scents so avoid wearing perfume and colognes.
