Anyone else on here go to Maine blueberries?
I worked my first load down yesterday. According to all my scale tickets the bees lost on average 15lb worth of feed, but they were brooded up very good and full of bees.
Now I did ship them in with 20lb of hard sugar and pollen mix of our own concoction, of which most was consumed, and the occasional hive did have a box of honey on. Overall they did not make any honey, but they sure are in great shape for the next pollination job.
Here's a pic of some bees on the back of a hot truck ready to be unloaded. Most of my bees on blueberries consisted of a deep brood box, a shallow honey box, and a 2" riser where I put our homemade supplemental feed in case of inclement weather. Of which was well needed this year.
And this is me, in the middle of unloading the bees.
