Bees and Honey

I mention bees on my blog quite often, and I saw this at the edge of a field I was checking. There were 20 boxes on this trailer. Actually I was interested in the trailer, after examining it closely I’m sure it was made out of salvaged axles and a frame of a single-wide mobile home. A good way to repurpose something like that!

About 5 miles down the road I saw two more trailers from the same beekeeper. Then I saw one more full trailer just a little later with the same farm name on the hives. The address for this beekeeper is over 70 miles from here, so he came a long way to put them out. I counted about 80 hives in this little area, and it made me wonder how many hives does he actually have? Way more than I would ever want!

    Ya know I been thinking about doing something like that but I can’t find an answer on what the going rate per hive per mile usually is. The few who admit to doing it are pretty mum about their charge.

    That’s odd I left a comment and it’s not here.

    I wonder how much they charge for pollination services. It seems like pimping out your bees 🙂
