    Default Question for the Almond pollinators

    just wondered what you do after the Almond (gold rush) ? do you travel to other areas to pollinate or is the almonds enough to do you for the year?

    If you live in CA, you go to a honey flow. If you are from out of state, I wish that you go back home.

    From almonds we go back to Florida for Orange9if we get back soon enough)then Tupelo and from there back home to Ky for honey. 400 colonies go from florida to wisconsin for cranberries then honey followed by coming back to Ky for fall crop. All are returned to Florida around Dec 1 to start all over again!

    thats what I was thinking suttonbeeman, I thought if someone traveled hives there they might go other places, guess I was kinda wondering about the locals that have thousands of hives, I could be out of place asking this but wondered if they made enough off the almonds just to manage and maybe increase hives until next seasons almonds bloom? waiting on Keith Jarret to chime in, how is your year planned out Keith if it ok to tell?
