Re: Begginner Question: Boxes Per Acre and how high??
Commercial pollinator typically move their hives multiple times per year. So densities of hives per acre for pollinators while pollinating does not apply to you if your hives stay in one place year-round.
Of course it varies by climate and location, and beekeeper, but often recommendations for static beeyards are somewhere around 20 hives.
Now, I expect you will hear about exceptions ....
