    Check out the point of view section: http://www.beesource.com/point-of-vi...r-may-11-2011/

    Traynor already confirmed in May 2011 that 2012 almond polination fees will be the same as 2011.

    I would'nt leave the house for 135.00 unless it' s my back yard. I know two large beekeepers from here that unless the price goes up from this years price are saying they will go for honey rather than go west.
    Freight and the fees are eating into the profit compared to honey and the good of the hives, and the growers playing games as long as the can find cheap bees just makes it less appealing .
    Where there are fruits and nuts there are beekeepers!!!

    Sheri I believe it was $169 to the beekeeper. Do you have extras for rent?
    Does anyone know if it is true Paramount does not spray fungicide on thier almonds?
    It must cost a lot of money to ship bees from Florida. Also a lot of risk involved sitting on a truck that long both ways.
    Everything that glitters is not gold.
