The past year or so has been a very turbulant time for the bee industry. Largly in part the phenomenon called CCD. We unfortunatly had our share of losses. I try to maintain around 600 colonies of bees. That may sound like alot but compared to most “commercial” beekeepers, it is a rather small number. Out of those 600 we lost about 300 during the winter of 2006-2007. In the spring of 2007 we gained a little, but the bees were still not real healthy. This winter I had just over 400 going into winter of which there were about 325 survivors. We are getting ready to go to California now to pollenate almonds.
