    Default What are people charging?

    We have been contacted to provide bees for apitherapy for a lady. I think this may be an ongoing deal. If it was one or two times, I would just give them to them. Does anyone have a price for bees sold for this? I am sure it won't be many each time. And just out of curiosity, has anyone seen the prices to have a procedure done? My wife is wanting to get into this. We have found a couple of avenues for education, but was curious if it is worth the effort in case there is not much money to be made. Thanks!!!

    Here is what Weavers are doing. We have had many requests over the years. I no longer do it. Would rather set up a hive for people and let them plug away at grabbing their own as opposed to taking valuable time to do it for them. I'm not against it but the sad fact is the bees rarely pay the bills the way it is. Doing this takes a lot of time. Seen maybe a dozen people offer them over the years on a commercial basis, Most don't sell them very long for the reasons listed above.

    The only experience we have had is with people coming to our house for stings. We didn't charge. Some insisted on making a donation to replace the bees, but we never asked for payment. Its been a long time since we have had people ask for it. Do you have many people who buy them for that purpose?
