70% of honey sales goes to support honey bee research.

Capitol Bee CARE's honey is from honey bees living and pollinating in the District of Columbia. Local bees support your local agriculture and gardens, wildflowers and wildlife! Bees make your community a better place. Supporting local beekeepers supports local bees!

Locally Adapted, Genetically Diverse ​Honey Bees

Capitol Bee CARE is dedicated to identifying, isolating, and propagating characteristics that make our honey bees especially well suited to thrive, overwinter and produce in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Nucleus Colonies of Locally Adapted Honey Bees

Weather depending, we project that our first run nucs (ordered before April 15) will be ready near mid-May. Second run nucs will be available in early June.

Our standard five frame nuc typically includes one mated and accepted queen, two frames with bees, brood, larvae, and eggs one honey frame, one pollen frame and a mixed frame for expansion. We use plastic foundation because it transports better and is easier for new beekeepers to handle.
