Re: Can someone help explain this pollination contract entry?
I assume the expectation is the basic contract includes the initial dropoff and the final pickup. Should the grower want hives moved around the property for any reason that still takes place under this contract, that cost is an additional item the grower will pay for. ie.. one part of the orchard is "slow" and needs bees at a later time, the grower may want hives moved across the property to the late-bloom area to ensure proper pollination.
Very likely the grower isn't going to pay the beekeeper to move hives in/out when pesticides are being sprayed.
Beekeeping since 2009; currently running 20+ hives.
