    Sticky: Re: honey sell

    I could sell a truck load, but usually pack most of it for retail. I'm just curious about price if I do sell a handful of drums. I also was trying to get some activity going on this thread.

    Sticky: Re: honey sell

    What is the current price? We are likely going to be 15 to 20% short with the crop this year in the Southern states (too much rain all Spring). I'm guessing $2.25 to $2.30 per pound.

    Re: Payment on Pollination

    Well, we are all entitled to our opinions but that was rude. The OP was asking for payment practices on pollination. I will expand on my post because at least one person didnt quite get it.

    Re: Payment on Pollination

    Get payment upfront. If they can't afford to pay you at the beginning of pollination, then they wont be able to pay at the end of pollination.

    Re: Legal threat to move bees out of town

    Some state laws define honeybees as livestock. If livestock is not permitted in an area and honeybees are considered livestock, then they wouldn't be permitted in that area.

    Yep, you can reuse them. Steam clean or pressure wash them out... some queen breeders use them again and others don't. They are plastic, they can be sanitized.
