Beekeeping supplies are now just off I-25, not far from the Mousetrap, convenient for all of Denver and even Colorado. Visiting To Bee Or Not To Bee is better than on-line ordering; you can have your bee supplies TODAY! You can touch, lift, and look inside Langstroth, top bar, and Warre hives; explore nucs, toolboxes, smokers, and feeders; try on bee suits, bee veils, and bee hats; compare sizes of pollen, honey, and comb containers; and flip through books, magazines, and posters. Owner Vicki Munroe, a beekeeper herself, can advise you on the benefits and drawbacks of each option, and direct you to local bee clubs, classes, and advisors.
To Bee Or Not To Bee carries the basics (hives, veils), the optionals (nucs, books), and the just fun stuff (bee garden seeds, posters). You'll find everything from the practicality of medications and plastic deeps to the natural methods of top bar hives and herb-based bee food supplements.
