The Carolina Bee Company is really just two people who share a passion for honey bees1: Master Beekeepers6 Todd and Monica Warner.
Todd, the outdoorsy science and nature geek with a healthy dose of "country boy", has always been intrigued by bees, ants, and other swarming social insects. Unsurprisingly, beekeeping has always been peripherally intriguing to him. Out of curiosity, Todd purchased a used beekeeping book2 at a library sale in the early 1990s. This book sat on his shelf unread for a decade until 2004 when Todd heard an NPR3 news story outlining the ongoing struggle of beekeepers and bees with the varroa mite4. He finally picked up that book and read it.
From that humble beginning The Carolina Bee Company was born. The rest is apicultural history.
