    We really don't care what Joe does, what ever Joe does good for him,as it has nothing to do what we do.

    I suspect there will be a shortage of hives this year for two reasons. Cost of fuel for trucking will give the east coasters some hard numbers to crunch. I heard that last year a couple of shipments from FL got sent back at the CA border. Something about vegetation on the pallets. I heard a couple got someone to clean some of the shipments up, but both the loads sent back and the ones who had cleaning done lost on the year. Second I have seen a reduction in the number of hives being run by commercial beeks. Not in all cases, but I know a couple who have retired and others who are cutting back.

    Not sure how this will play into pricing, but the growers are going to have to evaluate pollination, water shares cost, increased shipping costs and I am sure increased processing costs.

    Are you commercial beeks getting a fair increase in hive rental due to fuel costs?
    I know here the farmers and ranchers have raised land rents considerably lately.

    Default hive rental rates and fuel

    No direct connection in hive rental rates and fuel. Just one of the factors beekeepers have to take into account when they decide to ship hives long distance. It does of course indirectly make a difference if a large number decide to stay home. Just got quoted 2.85 a loaded mile for the SD to Cal haul. Seems a bit high since we were paying 2.50 last year at this time and fuel is around the same price now and prices seem almost certain to fall a lot more. Trouble with delaying is the gamble you take with winter storms and bad weather on the road between here and there.

    Last night at a bee meeting, I heard Joe say that minimum 8 frame plus hives would rent to the grower for $180.00 paying $174.00 to the beekeeper. Other brokers there indicated lesser prices, but also with lesser frame allowance.

    The man from the almond growers indicated that the almond growers are facing a pinch and would be resistant to higher pollination prices - many orchards being removed due to
    the water situation, and the price of nuts being less than desireable.
