Our largest grower provides locked gates and has 24 hour security. Private security guards at night are there to watch the growers equipment as well as our hives.That is an aweful lot of hives taken in one spot! I hope they catch these guys, better yet, I hope the beekeeper catches them first! Simply amazing, pretty soon nobody is going to want to bring their bees to almonds due to the amount of theft, is it time for a security gaurd to be provided by the growers in the contract?
Well said, Phil. I will match that also, with a pallet of sub shipped to your door step for info on the where abouts of Paul's hives.Time for all of us to step up to the plate and keep our eyes open.
I am willing to offer a positive incentive to anyone who helps catch these scoundrels. Not much of a grand gesture compared to the other rewards being offered but I am willing to offer up to 100 queens on me to the first person who provides the adequate information leading to the arrest and conviction of the slime.
