    Re: comerical beekiping in ky

    I costs a lot to get started on a commercial level. If one were to buy out a modern 1500 colony bee outfit it would surprise me if it were a penny less than 500K. The bees, supers, trucks, forklifts,...

    Re: Getting bees ready to head to cali

    Yes, I get 145. So if the broker/beekeeper that sets them in and handles everything on that end gets 25 then the grower would be paying 170.

    Re: Getting bees ready to head to cali

    For our singles, we only need a 6 frame average. May I ask what you are getting paid for an 8 frame average single?

    Re: Weight scale exemptions

    Same thing happened to me in Kansas on I35 as Jim. Had the whole family in a 4 door one ton. They pulled us over. Told us to then follow him to the rest stop for a brake check. Of course it was a new...

  8. Re: If gas prices stay low ($2/gal. aver.) what impact will it have for you as a BKP

  9. Re: If gas prices stay low ($2/gal. aver.) what impact will it have for you as a BKP

    Seems like when gm got in their financial problems that their truck line got cut. How on earth can some one drive old trucks around and not get nailed by dot? Or is it that they pick on the guys with...

    For one ton trucks, we have been buying gas GMC's and have had great luck. They coast to 200000 miles. Basically no maintenance. Either way, do you think you could get 400k out of a new diesel? Most...

    Re: Formic Acid Flash Treatment

    The female mites mate with their brother. The formic acid treatment is better at killing the male mites in the capped brood than the females. But can those surviving virgin mites then able to mate...

    Re: Over wintering hives

    The real downside to vsh traits is that if you have high mite loads they will pick out the brood that they sense with mites thus not allowing rapid build up. Treatment would be required. I ran that...

    Re: Best State to Be a Commercial Beekeeper

    Ok so the new England winters have you down, but I bet the summers are pretty nice. Now if you had bees that you were to move to a southern state then you would have the best of both worlds!!

    Not to offend anyone, but why on earth would the maker of this product run trials with a beekeeper with 50 hives rather than a larger beekeeper that is digging in bees on a daily basis??? If I were...

    Re: Help me price this bid (pumpkin pollination)

    Sounds like you would lose money! Fifty times 8 is 400 bucks. Drop off pick up plus 4 trips to inspect at about 4 hours just in drive time. I wouldn't bother.
