Re: Hell yaa

Looks like a great deal. :thumbsup: One thing i would do,is talk to the growers and ask what kind of insecticide they use if any. Jack

check pesticides, fungicides, weed killers, and growth regulators that might be applied. Drift is a bad thing for bees. You dont know if you dont ask. Communication is key to survival when man made chems are involved.

its about 15-20 miles inland from the coast and only 1 farmer is still leasing any land and he is too far away to worry about, plan is to move 1 or 2 hives out 1st and see how it goes, if the foraging is as good as I hope then Ill move the whole thing out there, I found old orange groves not being farmed but still going, every kind of wild palm you can think of, wild blackberries(wish my house was out there)(( lol fixed))
