Urban Bee Store at GirlHacker’s Random Log. About the only retail bee keepers store, in SF. And in Seattle: “Ballard Bee Company will install active beehives on your property for the spring through summer seasons… The company also keeps bees for commercial clients such as the Fairmont Olympic Hotel where the hives sit on the roof and the honey goes into the restaurant’s menu.” The Fairmont might win me back to visit for high tea after all.

    I really want to keep bees, but like so many things in my neighborhood I am pretty sure it is not allowed.

    I wonder if you can keep bees in a cooperative group garden? We have a lot of neighborhood gardens around here, it would make sense that they might want bees around. That said, if you want to keep bees you a braver girl than I!

    For any beekeeping restrictions in your neighborhood, check with your city/town/county government. Note: people can keep bee hives in NYC.

    Here is a list of related laws for WA and King County and cities in the area:

    I love the idea of the ResQMe. My biggest concern is sticking your hand through broken glass. My 16 yo was standing here watching with me and commented that the guy was wearing a glove (which I had noticed too). If you don’t have something close by to use to protect your hand, this could be dangerous when punching your hand through broken glass if you happen to hit a vital blood vessel.

    Man, I’m pretty certain BBC didn’t charge for you to host their bees before they got popular. Dang it – if only I had owned my place last year when it was free and everyone was more busy with keeping chickens in their yard trend ;-)
