[Seattle] Needed Experienced Assistant - Ad Hoc Work When Needed

1601 0
I just had shoulder surgery, and will be unable to do a lot of my spring work. I am looking for a experienced or semi-expereinced beekeeper to help with tasks. You would be expected to come with me on certain days and will be doing the bulk of the work. I am completely unable to lift anything, so you would be doing most of the work while I supervise. Would love to set up a long-term relationship.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • Basic beekeeping methods
  • More than 2 years experience
  • Understanding of lifecycles
WHAT WE WILL BE DOING
  • Making Splits
  • Securing and Moving Hives
  • General Inspections
  • Swarm Collection
  • Loading and Unloading Gear
AVAILABILITY
  • Ad Hoc work, meaning once or twice a month
  • We would schedule in advance
  • Perhaps some emergency help with swarm collection
  • Would love to set up a long-term relationship

ABOUT ME
I am a very small operation and have about 100 colonies around the greater Seattle area. Some travel will take 30-40 min to get to apiaries but most are in-city.

PAY
Pay would depend on experience, but never less than $125 per day. Days would average around 4 hours but never more than 8 hours

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
I adhere to all CDC and State recommendations for Covid-19. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask and practice all suggested practices, please do NOT apply.
