    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.

    I'm referring to the area between Elderwood, ca and porterville, ca not to much snow to be had there around mid to late April. Nothing I'm saying is ment to cause controversey just stating my observations as I'm in that area 8 months out of the year.

    So Big Bill,
    If I'm understanding this right a young ambitious guy like myself shouldn't get the same opportunity as many of the keepers had 25+ years ago. As most of the operations I know started the same way as I did with a few hives and grown from there.
    As for your Russian/Montana comment that's a bunch of bs. I feel as though I am representing the bee industry as it should be. I supply awesome bees for the growers I work with and if anyone farmer or the public ever has a bee problem I address it quickly and get it taken care of. Both of the above I feel as though many guys are doing a piss poor job of.

    North Dakota is FULL
    It so packed full the hives are lined up against the Canadian border.

    Not only are bees flying across the border,....small hive beetle is migrating also and whatever else will eventually arrive....duty free
    and without clearing customs......so there goes for your tight secure border

    Hey Mike, if your asking me for permission I don't beleave it's my right to grant or deny what you wish to do. Sounds kinda like the guys that are trying to tell the farmers what they are able to do and apply to there crops. I run half my opperation in North Dakota and I picked up two new neighbors last year. Obviously I would prefer it to be just me there as years past but that's not my call, they should have the same opportunity. Right? Put your time and effort into your business, own up to your mistakes(not passing the blame onto someone else), and make the best of what you have.

    arrest those bees and export everyone that doesnt clear customs and make em spit out the nectar prior to exportation.

    Montana has a three mile radius registration law.
