    Re: Paramount Farms buying out beekeepers?

    This is an interesting topic.
    I don't see the doom and gloom though? Paramount Farms has 46,000 acres of almonds according to a past post, this is less than 10% of the almond acreage in California....

    Re: Inspiration to keep going

    If the above was true you can pretty much rule California out. I don't know any package producers that leave bees out of almonds so they can shake them later, other than to start cell builders early....

    Re: Inspiration to keep going

    Keeping hives healthy, strong and full of bees is as hard as it has ever been.
    Making money with strong healthy hives full of bees is easy in todays market.

    Re: Should we try pollinating?

    Forget the bees buy 2 Peterbuilts , 2 dropdecks, and 2 sets of nets. You and your brother could be profesional bee haulers.

    Re: What kind of drums to buy?

    Open head food lined steel drums with lever rings. A lot of the new drums are light weight be careful of the light ones. Over 40 pounds with ring and lid is a good starting point.

    Re: Buying Hives

    Re: Indoor wintering

    Good question. Wish I had an answer also.
    What would the ideal RH be inside a bee hive?
    I would think 40% RH would be better than 80% RH?
