    That would be laughable if it were not so tragic. Maybe it will permanently run some beeks out of the market. That ought to make next year more interesting.

    The demand curve for pollination should be relatively inelastic, but if folks are willing to give there services away that is a moot point.

    North Dakota area code. Wonder if the bees are still in ND or already in Calf. with no contracts? Who would ship 3000 bees with no contract? If that was the case then I bet they are just trying to recover their shipping at this point. Great way to do business and put it to your fellow Beeks at the same time.

    We are a little long on hives this year. We wintered better than expected which is a good problem. The extras won't be rented for $75 they will sit before they go in at that price.

    because if the hives are big then it just compounds the lose-half price for big bees -maybe he can get some citrus honey if paramont will let him-sad just scratches the surface-RDY-B

    Keith:

    I'm kinda wondering about your friend. What circumstances were set in motion that he is without a contract 10 days/2 weeks before the job starts? If he's from Minnesota he's probably done pollination before. Did his previous grower decide to forgo bees on account of water rationing?
