It is no secret that a very large amount of bees are sent to almond orchards every year for almond pollination. Whether or not you agree with this, have moral reservations about it, or contribute to it is immaterial, it happens. But, what I am curious about is what happens next? When a beekeeper palatalizes a bunch of boxes and puts them on a truck and they show up in someone's orchard.. Who manages those colonies, and what does such management look like? Are they collecting the almost blossom honey? Are they supering the boxes, or doing something else so that they just have stronger build up without big storage instinct? Are there anti swarming techniques involved? Do those colonies every make it back across the country to a person's apiary? I have seen lots of people selling the heck out of our wood honey, but have yet to ever see "Almond Blossom" honey. One would think you could bathe in it.
