    That's a beautiful sight. I can't begin to imagine all the money tied up in that operation.

    That yard, had nearly 2500 colonies

    It may not look like it but we didn't start loading till the sun was setting.

    Had 5 Loads loaded and strapped in 2 hours,
    4 Bobcat Operators
    4 Guys Smoking for the Bobcat Operators
    4 Guys Dropping Nets and strapping Down,

    Plus all the bosses just watching.

    This was the culmination of a week of washing Boxes and pallets in preparation for California Almonds.

    With The Pallets already double stacked and one bobcat operator on either side of a semi, it took about 15 minutes to get a load of bees onto the truck,
    then the netting/strapping team would start as the bobcat operators went to the next truck.
