At Vegas Bees, our mission is to protect and preserve bees, the vital pollinators, by providing them with a comfortable environment in the Joshua Tree Preserve.
Through our bee removal and relocation services in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, we ensure these invaluable insects continue to thrive and play their essential role in the ecosystem.
Our Joshua Tree Preserve: A Honey Bee Haven
The Joshua Tree Preserve is home to our rescued honey bees. Our hives at the preserve are thriving, thanks to the preserve's natural beauty and our dedicated care.
The bees have access to solar-powered fountains for hydration, which are not only vital for their survival but also attract a variety of wildlife to the preserve.
The preserve's pristine desert location offers clean air and beautiful weather, contributing to the overall well-being of the bees.
Fresh water is essential for honey bees, and the solar-powered fountains at the preserve provide a reliable source of clean water throughout the day.
By ensuring a steady supply of fresh water, we contribute to the health of the bees and the delicate balance of the desert ecosystem. We hope you will make one for your own backyard. Remember, it's important to keep it shallow, as bees don't do well in swimming pools.
The bees carry a significant amount of the water back to their hives, but many other creatures also enjoy this fresh water. The sound of running water attracts a variety of wildlife, including chickens, cats, ground squirrels, lizards, various birds, and foxes, to name just a few.
We have four fountains and three ponds set up throughout the preserve. Take a look at our honeybee water fountain.
We understand how crucial a fresh water supply is to all our bees and the other inhabitants of the Joshua Tree Preserve. It brings us great joy to watch them all stop by for a drink and relax by the fountains.
These fountains are easy to maintain and care for. We hope you'll be inspired to create one for your own backyard.
The Joshua Tree Preserve in the high desert of Arizona is home to our rescued honey bees. This beautiful, unspoiled three-acre property is not to be confused with the Joshua Tree Park in California; they are two very different places.
Situated 3,500 feet above sea level, the preserve boasts clean air, a stunning desert environment, and beautiful weather.
The bees thrive in this pristine natural area. We provide bee water fountains and shady spots for their hives to ensure their comfort.
We understand the importance of preserving this beautiful and fragile desert. However, the well-documented threat of climate change is always looming, and we strive to do what we can to maintain the health of both the desert and the honey bees.
To create the ideal environment for our honey bees, we implement several measures to protect them from the harsh desert climate.
Insulated hives are crucial for shielding the bees from freezing winters and scorching summers. We also plant shade trees and cover the hive roofs with large foam boards to provide additional protection from the sun's extreme heat.
Through our consistent efforts to improve their living conditions, we contribute to the long-term survival of the honey bee population.
Check out our Bee Friends who are also doing great things for the bees.
In addition to the measures taken at the Joshua Tree Preserve, we encourage individuals to create their own DIY honey bee water stations. These simple and effective water fountains can be made using a few basic items: a bucket, a PVC pipe, fresh water, and a tennis ball.
The bees can drink from the small crescent-shaped area created by the floating tennis ball, ensuring they have access to the hydration they need to stay healthy.
