The fees for almonds is going higher. So high, the biggest commercial beek here in NJ is in Florida right now preparing two truck loads for california as we speak. W/ cost of gas, I imagine he is getting a lot per hive. I asked but wife wouldn't tell me the cost per hive. Those bees will be so stressed by the time they get there. Yikes! Probably screened at least four days at minimum, weather changing hourly. Cant imagine the poor soul who has to open them up for the first time. He better be a fast runner.
