pollination deal q
I was asked to place a hive onto a property that is a 4 acre retail nursery for pollination- they feel that some of their fruit tress aren't getting visited by enough bees. The folks asked some questions I didn't have answers to, and I plan to call my state inspector Monday, but figured I'd see what the opinion/experience was out here in cyber-bee-space.
The biggest question was- if they have customers that get stung while visiting- are they, or I, liable?
The place is very mom/pop, and we agreed upon an out of the way, nice location for the hive. I wouldn't expect any issues, but anymore, people never cease to be amazing. I get avocados, key limes and star fruit out of the deal, and I toss them a pound or two of honey. My yard looks like it could start to be crowded, so another yard close by would be convenient. I plan to invite them to my home yard, and have them see the activity around a hive, so there are no surprises to them.
My wife says I have ADD, but, hey look- a chicken!
