Huh moving bees ????

Well after keeping honey bees for over 20 years as a hobby, I can address the question.

The first question I have is: what do you want to accomplish moving the bees around?

You will have to have the bees inspected before you can bring them across state lines and have a certificate to verify inspection.

Next you will have to decide how long you will stay in each location. It takes the bees a couple of days to orient themselves and begin to collect significant amounts of pollen and nectar.

Moving is hard on bees and they will need to be fed in transit, with sugar syrup which they might store in the comb, contaminating the honey they have made.

I think you need to do your homework before moving them around.

Big enough here that bees can be moved a huge distance and don't have to be inspected because they're not crossing any political boundaries that matter.

A few years ago, pollination service was $140/hive/2 weeks so if one can transport enough hives and strike a deal, one could have a good amoutn f fuel costs paid and get free camping.

Need the trailer to do it of course.

Obviosly, the 1-2 million hives moved to California for almond season (from as far as Florida) seems to indicate it's certainly a commercially-worthwhile endeavour.

Moving Bees

Know a commercial beekeeper here in NY that takes his bees to FL in fall, makes splits out of about 50%. Sends to California for almonds then they come back to NY in the spring.
Need to be inspected before each move for mites and disease. Bees often get stolen in Florida. Alot of trust involved with the broker for California as they make the move. Makes a living at it.
