    Re: Inspiration to keep going

    If starting with just 50 hives, you will have so much time on your hands you may as well do some wood working. Who needs six and a half days off a week? Hahaha

    Re: Inspiration to keep going

    Lots of bee outfits have been sold on contract. Work for a seasoned beekeeper for a few years. After you know the ins and outs he will set you up. No bank for anything except an operating loan.

    Re: Should we try pollinating?

    Talk to all the beekeepers in your area that are successful in similar practices. Ask for their advice. If moving bees from east Texas into almonds make sure you get every fire ant off.

    Sounds good. I appreciate the help. I have looked on craigslist, with no luck. I would assume if a thief were good at being a thief they would already have changed boxes, lids and pallets by now.
