    [QUOTE=Shastina Millwork;745820] posts on this thread that claim that bee pollination is 20% of the growers expense? Well, it is proven that pollination is actually 5% of the growers gross revenue (which is still low).

    Just curious, what is your source that pollination cost are 5% of revenue.
    FSA and U.C. CO-OP extension use much higher numbers.


    mnbeekeeper: Don't know anyone getting $240 hive. There is a maximum. I get at least one call a day from growers saying they are getting offers for 8 frames at $125.00.
