With the concern of the worldwide phenomenon of CCD, Colony Collapse Disorder, we designed an apiary on our roof top to compliment our green roof gardens. Apis Mellifera is the scientific name for the common honey bee we have in our apiary. The apiary consists of 3 colonies that house approximately 150,000 bees during the peak of summer pollen and nectar flow. Each hive will produce approximately 40 to 60 lbs of honey which is harvested and shared with our Western union money order clients and staffs. We are currently part of a study by Dr. Katherine Dunster, MBCSLA, CSLA, R.P.Bio. and York University with Osmia Lignaria or Blue Orchard Mason bee on how the urban environment impacts their natural nesting behavior to determine if they will naturally inhabit our rooftop sanctuary.
