The Average Joe Beekeeper provides Hive / Colony Maintenance and Management Services at your Apiary location when you are away or your time does not permit you to manage and maintain your hives and colonies. These Services are performed by the Average Joe Beekeeper but when the Beekeeper is available, he/she/they are welcome to observe. General Findings can be provided to the Hive / Colony Owner via a short 10 -15 minute phone discussion. In depth observations can be provided at an additional charge.
Minimum Service Session length is 60 Minutes. Most basic Hive Service Sessions require about 30 – 45 minutes per hive but depending on the hive condition, maintenance required, number of bees (hive strength), time of year, etc. could extend to 90 minutes or more. You can purchase additional 30 minute Service Sessions but will only be charged for the time used after the initial 60 minutes if more time is purchased than required. Refunds or credit can be provided if additional time is purchased up front but not used. Likewise, billing for additional time past initially purchased sessions time will be billed/invoiced after the service based on actual sessions expended.
Note: For locations within a 30 minute drive (as determined by WAZE or a similar Computer/Smart Phone Application) of Parker, CO (Zip Code 80134), no trip charge is required or charged. For locations greater than the 30 minute but less than a 60 minute driving time, a travel charge of $60 will be charged. The Trip Charge can be purchased as a separate item. For driving times of greater than 60 minutes, contact the Average Joe Beekeeper at Beekeeper@HappyBusyBees to determine the applicable Trip Charge.
