  6. Re: Free Shipping Rant (Beekeeping Equipment Big Box Stores)

    So I got this newsletter from Kelley's saying they dropped their min order from $200 to $150 for their "free" shipping. Although it appears they haven't updated their website yet.

  7. So, has big box bee companies raised their prices again?

    So, I haven't had a chance to look at prices, but its seemed to me that your big box stores raise prices around this time of year. Any drastic changes in prices with equipment?

    Awesome! I've been looking for a solution like this instead of just stacking them or putting them in shrink wraps.

    Re: Help me price this bid (pumpkin pollination)

    I've heard the same on the poor nectar/pollen crop, but its only 3-4 acres, not a monocrop.

    I was figuring I would visit the hives at least once a week to make sure they were ok, however, you...
