I was wondering what the going rate is in your area and what you pollinate.

Depends on the crop, hives per acre requirement, etc.  Ballpark figure is $50.00 to $80.00 per hive.

Since I live in Southern Oregon, I inquired about almond pollenation...I am told the going prince is $140-150 per hive...But the hive has to have 7 frames covered with bees.

Whatever the "going rate" is I won't haul them around for less than $50 a hive because it's too much work and too much gas for too little return otherwise.  If they can find someone cheaper, then that's less work I have to do.  Smiley

I like mine where they're at. I get a good early flow and then when it gets hot I can coast along, start my fall program, make queens , garden, etc.-etc. and on and on, oh well, ya'll get the pic.

I think I'm going to have to (eventually, when my hive count is respectable) network with some my neighboring state's organic almond farmers.  cool  Be great way to jump start the season and get paid for doing so.
