If you’d like to donate by PayPal we’d appreciate your support. It takes many hours of experience, research, coding and of course bee stings to create and maintain this website. If you find this site useful and would like to help, you can donate by PayPal to assist with its development.

honeybee-fanningWe try to give information and advice to people with bee ‘problems’ and encourage budding beekeepers. Help us spread the word with a PayPal donation. The cost of providing the computer equipment, cell phone minutes and the web hosting service is considerable.

If there is any disruption in the hive a few workers will stand at the entrance, head down, their Nasonov pheromone gland (white-at tip of abdomen) open, fanning the pheromone outwards to signal to any hive members in the vicinity where the entrance is. If you would like to contribute please click on the button below and make a contribution via PayPal.

Please take the time to check out some of our sponsor’s links. We try to keep the number of advertisements to a reasonable level. If you have an interesting bee story please share it. We love to hear from our visitors.

The creation of this website is as much a labor of love as beekeeping. Do you have a passion you’d like to pass on to others, find out how to do it with SBI!

We get calls generated by our other website SanDiegoBees.com asking for help and advice. Unfortunately I cannot usually collect swarms or remove bees free of charge.

However I am more than happy to give whatever help and I’d love to hear what’s on your mind. The more people I can inform about honey bees, the better it is for them, the general public and the bees themselves!

We are very grateful for any amount you are able to give.


Thank you!
