    Nice Ajaz! Thanks for the photos. I like your frames. Do you wire them with foundation or are they foundation-less?

    Ajaz,

    Thanks for sharing. Looks like you have some healthy hives. Do you make all of your equipment?

    Near the right margin of the picture of the migration truck I could see an extractor on the ground.
    1. Are you associated with this migration truck?
    2. Is it common practice in India to extract honey "on site"?
    I like the painting on the truck's side.

    We in India extract honey on site always from 10 years.
    This migration truck is for only hilly mountain areas for short migration of about 400kms.
    For long migrations above 2000kms we use open small trucks containing 275 hive

    Ajaz,

    What part of India are you in? Do you export all your honey? Are you a pollinator as well?

    Welcome!!! I recently let my coriander/cilantro bolt and was surprised to see how happy the bees were to find it. We have a slow bolting variety that seems to produce large flowers. Thanks for the pictures. i am looking forward to hearing more about your operation.

    Again, Welcome!!

    In india here are 28 states

    I am from the upper 1st one
    Jammu and kashmir
    But we migrate bees all over india.

    Dont ask for pollination

    Last year I went rajasthan one state in india
    For bee migration on thymol flowers.
    You cant believe what landlords said to me
    I told them I want your land on hire for honeybees.
    They answered where they collect from
    Answered from thymol flowers
    They said no
    What r benefits
    I answered like a scientist
    Like to make a baby a man goes to his wife then x and y meets and baby starts
    Iike thus way bees go from one to another polination makes you seeds healther get more crop yied etc etc.



    I was shocked with their answer
    They said bees dont go on one flower.
    Tell me if a woman will go to 50 mens no pollination occurs
    I went back and leaved that district.
    But some states like jammu and kashmir punjab are good
