Urban Native Bees At Work

What Our Clients Say

We purchased a new property and just as the excavators were about to start we realised we had two native bee hives in some tree stumps. Ocean responded quickly to my call and worked with the earth movers to carefully remove the hives. They are now safe and sound in their new home. It was a delight to work with someone who is clearly passionate about bees.

We couldn’t recommend Ocean at Urban Native Bees enough.

Lauren, Mount Gravatt East

I purchased a native bee hive from Ocean at Urban Native Bees over a year ago now…. was the best decision ever. Ocean has been, and still is, amazing with her advice and time. The love and care she shows for every hive is incredible….. so much so I bought a second hive from her! Such amazing little creatures – so beautiful to watch.

Jody, Brisbane

Ocean is absolutely passionate about our native bee population. Her rescues are done with care and compassion for the little creatures, and her hive boxes are built specifically for the needs of the individual species. You are guaranteed to get a quality product with a well cared for colony, backed by years of industry knowledge and superb after sales support. I have two beautiful hives from Ocean already and am about to purchase my third. They are all works of art in themselves, I can’t recommend Urban Native Bees highly enough.

Kathryn, Brisbane

Ocean is an amazing urban beekeeper with a genuine passion for bees and everything bee related. Her expertise is evident in the happy and healthy bee colonies she manages. What sets her apart is not just her knowledge but her strong commitment to sustainability and educating the community.
I have one of Ocean’s beautiful hives and she has been an absolute source of knowledge and reassurance for me, no question has been too silly, my garden has never flourished so well and my bees are super happy. If you’re seeking a dedicated and knowledgeable urban beekeeper, look no further. Highly recommended! 🐝🌿

Lisa, Brisbane

Very well made hives and happy bees. I’ve had my hive 2 years will be buying another as the quality of the hive build is great

Bree, Brisbane

I have been buying native bee products from Ocean for some years now through her Urban Native Bees business. I have always found her items to be top quality and very well priced. Ocean is also a wealth of knowledge about all things ANB related. I recently purchased a hive of Aa bees from Ocean. The hive is beautifully made and the colony is healthy, strong and very active. Ocean is very passionate about saving our ANB and rehoming them.

I gladly recommend Urban Native Bees and Ocean.

Mal, Brisbane

Highly recommend!
Ocean has a true passion for bees. Her hives are excellent quality and well established. Bees are out and exploring on day one and I have all the information I need to support them. I am very impressed and excited to have such a thriving hive.

Laressa, Brisbane

Ocean has a true passion for her bees. You can tell from the first engagement that she is doing this for the love of bees and not just trying to make a buck. Her service and advice are second to none and her hives are made with the highest quality and standards. We got our TC hive yesterday, and the girls are already loving their new location, exploring our garden and taking advantage of the extra bees wax put at their entrance. We will definitely be buying more hives from Ocean in the future, I think the viewing hive might be next 🙂
