Re: Getting started in pollination
Why do beekeepers need access to hives in the groves? Because they didn't get their work done before hand and they might swarm? Any time a colony in pollination is worked my growers consider that day a loss. In apples that might be the one day that bees really fly. Maybe almonds are enough different from NY apples that working them during pollination doesn't matter. I'm just curious why beekeepers need to work in their hives during almond pollination.
Maybe it's to shoot them some corn syrup?
