I need a little advice. This is my first Apple Pollination. Have done others, but not apples. Grower says bees are only needed one to two weeks. Would like it priced accordingly. From those of you who pollinate apples, don't you usually have bees on bloom for a month? If not, do you modify the price of the rental? It seems to me one week or four, its the same amount of work loading and unloading and setting the hives.
In addition, any advice/issues to watch would be appreciated. thanks
