I think they are quite familiar with bees, beekeeping and beekeepers. I suspect many beekeepers would gladly go on salary and have a steady income, rather than having to follow the elusive honey flows. Presumably these companies have millions of acres in various states and the budget to maintain the colonies. I mean, if they pay $200 per colony already, it seems obvious they could hire a crew, pay expenses and still spend less. Otherwise, why would they attempt it?At the end of the day Paramount will likely end up having greater respect for beekeepers no matter if the go all in or not.
