    Default I want to send bees to N. Dakota

    Hi, I am interested in sending a semi of beehives to North Dakota or other places during the summer for honey. I had one truck last year in N. Dakota and they did well, but the beekeeper I worked with decided to place his own hives. Currently, my hives are strong on at least 2 deep boxes, full of bees, they just came out of citrus (oranges). I was wondering if you know (recommend) someone that has registered locations and does a fair job, is honest, as we are. Thanks.

    All the added pressure I observed this year was from California opperations holding bees back from coastal and southern regions do to the drought. Nothing to do with out of state opperations.

    You must have been looking in the wrong spots. You sure it didn't have something to do with snow?
    I think Bigbill has it right.

    Vicor (Happybees) is sending a load up here to a friend of mine for the honey season. Hopefully it will be profitable for everyone. Looking better as we have received some substantial rain over the last couple of days with good chances for more over the next few days.
