    We run between 5,000 and 6,000 however I think 5 or 6 would be much more relaxing.

    Is that what you are in beekeeping for, relaxing? With 5 or 6,000 I doubt it. You must do pollination in California. How is that going for you. I have a friend who is sending all of his colonies to CA for the almonds. He thinks that that will be better than wintering in FL and making a crop of honey. One expense he won't have is trucking his honey supers down and up Rt. 95.

    sqkcrk we do go to California have been since before I was born. After CA we send about 1/2 to Oregon for cherries and pears. The other 1/2 come home to Idaho and we make nucs also poll. some fruit here. In may ship about 4,500 to ND to produce honey. The rest are left in ID were we produce some honey and do a little bit of seed poll. We are leaving for CA next week so winter is over next week for us.

    Nick Noyes,
    Chuck Kutik and Paul Cappy are friends of mine, here in NY, who are sending their bees to CA for the first time. Any advice?
