Can I be held liable for allowing someones bees to die wile in my possession during a lease
Legally or ethically?
Thanks I shipped two loads of bees and we suffered extremely heavy losses after my mid summer inspection it appears that the person who was responsible delayed harvest as well as treatment.
i shipped 2 loads of bees on a honey split deal my early august inspection all was well . It appears the person who had received our bees was delayed pulling honey this delayed treatment this causing extremely high hive loses .If you sprayed an insecticide or other chemical that could be reasoned harmful to bees while the leased bees were on your property, yes. If the hive collapsed due to varroa vectored viruses and you were not required to treat the bees, then you should not be liable. You really did not provide much background, and I am not an attorney.
