The Beez Knees!


We are beeyond excited to announce that on Wednesday, The Ford Building welcomed approximately 10,000 new tenants to the building's rooftop!

Lenore Eukland, a newbee beekeeper and wife of the Baker's Mark, will be maintaining the hive now located outside of the 3rd floor stairwell.  She is mentored and instructed by Gregg Everhart of Portland Urban Beekeepers

We were lucky enough to be present during the transfer of the bees and we gotta tell you, we're so fascinated by these beeautiful bugs we want to share more info with you and hopefully calm any  fears of bee infestations you might possibly have.

We also took A LOT of photos, please see below.

Thriving Hives
We had a lot of questions prior to the installation of the hive.  First and foremost, we had concern about bees making their way into the building or nesting in unwelcome places.  For this reason, we hand selected their new home based on the rarely accessed rooftop, which is adjacent to the South-facing non-operable windows.  Providing the bees with a home and water will generally keep them from making a new home inside the building.

Lenore will be visiting the building a couple times a week, inspecting the hive to make sure the bees are living their best life, checking their water in the buckets located on the rooftop and making sure they are active around the outside of the hive. Since they were just transferred from their transportation box, they will spend the rest of the summer building out the new spacious frames in the hive.

A few more questions we had for Lenore:

Q. How big will the Hive get?

A. "The bees are busy building out their comb and building up food stores, so they probably won't put too much energy into expanding this season.... it's like they have moved into a shell of a house and they are building it out and stocking their pantry.

Q. How long will they live on the roof?

A. "The bees will stay on the roof for as long as the Ford Community welcomes them. In the winter, the bees will stay inside the hive warming themselves and living on their honey stores... But adding additional boxes keeps them from getting too cramped and swarming looking for a bigger space. By doing maintenance checks every few weeks, I'll be able to know when it's time to add more."

Q. Where can people learn more about beekeeping?

A. Portlandurbanbeekeepers.org


A few more fun facts about Honeybees:
  • 21 days is the length of time for a worker bee to hatch after the egg is laid
  • 15-38 days is the lifespan of a Summer Honeybee
  • 3-10 months is the lifespan of a Winter Honeybee
  • 2 miles is the distance bees will travel for food, water and pollen
