Im wondering what pollination.services would typically go for. Is there a small market available to the backyard beekeeper and where would you begin with pricing?

If you have enough bees to pollinate commercial crops (even small farms) pricing runs anywhere from $35-$200 per hive depending on the crop. Here in FL most pollination goes for $45-$65. If a home owner just wants a hive or two to pollinate his fruit trees or garden you'd have to work out what it is worth to you.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Scott,
when pollinating mono crops like melons or cucumbers and such, does your hives backfill with pollen? I know it happens around here on pumpkins.
