***This is an example listing.
I would like to request honey bees to pollinate my apple trees for next year. I do not use pesticides, but I have a neighbor with a vineyard about a mile away. I am uncertain whether he uses pesticides for his crops.
There is a small stream that runs through my property, but it should be plenty of water for the bees - especially in April.
My neighbors have a dog and three horses, but that should not bee (pun intended) a problem and they are all quite docile. Deer and coyotes also live in the area.
We have a small population of wild honeybees, but would like to rent 50 healthy hives to help pollinate our 50 acre apple orchard. In April, the weather is usually around mid-70's with lows of mid-40's.
Our land has a shaded, level, and paved area that would be suitable for the hives. There is a wide area that could easily fit a large truck for transporting them.
Please feel free to contact me if you are willing to deliver to my area! I am OK with beekeepers leaving the bees on my land up to a week before or after our rental agreement if they need to.
P.S. - The more detailed a post, the easier it is for beekeepers to match with you.
