    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))
