bees are taken out of a production cycle
normal pollination fees wont substitute production loss + costs
bees are over worked and out of production for the rest of the season, diseases / colony deaths more prone also.
our normal work stops to help you.
Small scale pollination are required by some that only have a few hectares of crops/orchards. Commercial pollination will not be viable , but we might offer a free pollination service if the area will be viable for us to keep a sustainable amount hives year round. (T&C)
Lets be clear and straight with you! Many beekeepers take short cuts when it comes to pollination work and hive standards. Money is at stake and where money is at stake it often means compromise.
On your right is what a hive should look like.
At least 8 frames of bees when you open the lid
4 frames of brood ("eggs" that will hatch during pollination)
