    Thank you George.

    We also have several thousand acres of mellons and onion in Arizona after almonds if you are interested.

    The onions and melons are located west of Phoenix and in the Yuma area.
    We have onions in Washington, (Moses Lake area) and Texas (San Antonio and McAllen area).

    Hey Steve,

    What are the dates for onions and melons out of almonds? In other words, when could we expect them to finish to get them to the home yards for honey production?

    There is a 4 - 6 week break between almonds.
    CA, AZ and TX fire up in April and run thur late summer. Just now finishing in CA as we speak.
    WA. starts in May/June and run thur their short summer.
    There are several plantings during the year so you can do one or two or several pollination contracts from spring to August. This year anyway???

    Several people have asked about hive rental rates for almonds and Calif. blueberries:
    According to U.C. Cooperative Extension:
    Almond Orchard Costs Studies 2011: Recommends 2 hives of 8 frames, per acre for trees 4 years or older at an estimated cost of $140.00 per hive.
    Bluebeeies Orchard Costs: Recommends 2 hives of 10 frames, per acre at an estimated cost of $165.00 per hive.
    Almonds and Blueberries, both require pollination during February - March.

    No, you do not need to send them out to California in October. Our clients in Florida and other parts of the south send them to us in mid January.

    So we have someone in New Zealand brokering bees to another broker in California who also feeds, medicates and re-queens?

    Ernie, we feed Ultra Bee pollen substitute and/or syrup with Pro Health.
    In regards to the medications, we have each client complete a “Medication and Feed History Survey” telling us what medications and the treatment history have been used in the pass; we normally do an alcohol wash test to determine mite levels; we have our own lab equipment to test for Nosema spore counts and tracheal mites. Based on the results of the tests and previous applications and results, we establish a treatment protocol with the client and determine which medications will be used.
    In regards to queens. Our breeder queens come from Glen Apiaries, we have Carniolans, Italians.
    As for additional sources we are very fortunate to be located an hour or so drive of several excellent breeders such as Taber’s ,Heitkam’s, Koehnen’s Powell, Olivarez, and Strachan.
    Some of our out of state clients prefer to use local queens from their area and will send queens to us and we place in the hive.
    Hope this Helps.

    Didn’t see anywhere where the New Zealand broker “ALSO” offered to feed, medicate and requeen?
    They do have a very interesting concept. This web site will be similar to watching the stock market for the price of pollination services. We have the Ask, Bid, and Sell prices to watch.
    This will be interesting to watch as it developes.

    We are going to have an excellent year thanks to everyone and to BeeSource.
    We have filled every 2012 contract, added new ones, and are still adding a few more this week.
    Next year we will expand our wintering operations to 5,000 hives. Contact us early in September 2012, as we will fill up fast.
    Thank You! and God’s Blessings!
