Re: Paying someone to move bee hives to another state?
Ship them as NUCs, you will save a lot of money. I have a beginner beekeeper friend in Austin who would keep the NUCs while you make the transit, or I can keep them just three hours North of Austin.
FWIW, Descriptive research does not necessarily need to be statistically significant (thus, only six hives). There may be some benefit to describe how the flora of the gut might (not) change with location for six hives.
