Sweet Clover, but Fl is not known for clover honey production .
If they are just buying bee operations all they are doing is taking over ownership of bees ,which is not really adding bees to the whole pollination equation . Let them see what its like ,if you run...
It looks like the Basswood shed most of its bells before the bloom, is that what you have seen?
I got my two loads at $2.90 , The broker was telling me some drivers are getting $4.00 a mile to haul pipe on the east coast. Its been really hard to find trucks out of Maine this year.
Thats what Im hearing about the trucking situation, I guess the truckers are getting paid big $$ to haul pipes for some pipeline or something.
Where in Maine did they go? Mine get loaded tonight out of the Ellsworth area.
It looks like some pretty cool weather coming in next week ,if some of these guys can't run frost protection it could be a disaster.
My grower doesn't want the bees until after the 10th ,so I think we have plenty of time.
The sides are cut out so you can look down the side of the pallet when putting it on the truck or trailer.
The mast is made by Edwards and the caster has to be made by a custom fabrication shop, any one that you can convince one to do it. You get in and out of the machine between the cage and the mast.

Thanks for bringing that math equation to my attention ,I would have never thought to put in all those figures. I don't care what Joe Traynor or Denise Quails are saying ,Im simply stating the price...
I think some brokers are trying to set a price for the season ,"a going rate" . Most brokers just get a flat rate $20-$25 a hive so it doesn't really mater what the price is. The broker I was talking...
Ive been talking with a broker that is getting $180.00 this season .
You can easily make a 65 lb average on orange blossom.
Shouse, how many hives does your company place into the almonds?
In Florida they spray before the bees go in , so if you are sitting there all winter you might have some damage ,that was my point.
Your best luck for that type of arrangement will be with a Blueberry grower or maybe an Avocado grower, in Florida . They do grow Blueberries in Ga but they spray allot.
My house and shop is in the middle of an orange grove ,Im surrounded by miles of groves. I see the helicopters and the planes fly over from time to time. I keep about 200-500 nucs in my backyard and...
Ive sent allot of singles to Ca over the past few years. Most have about about 8 frames of bees . My covers have a 5/8 rim on them which makes a big difference in the amount of brood and bees you...
