Re: Pollination of soybeans
Yes as a follow up to some of the previous comments re farmers and spraying, I'd like to give some of them a thumbs up for doing their best for the bees.
I recently met for the first time the farmer next door to one of my bee yards, and discovered that since he saw the bees on his neighbors property, he has without being asked, gone to the trouble of doing all his spraying at night in the hope this will minimise damage to the bees.
This was really going above and beyond, lucky to have such great folks in the world.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
