Hello everyone, we own a small farm in western north carolina way up in the appalachian mountains. I've heard about the diseases and other things affecting bees all over the country, so my question is this... Does anyone know if a wild and apparently "immune" hive of bees would be worth much money? They would be nice to keep around for pollinating our berries, but if it would be profitable to have someone come out and collect them to propogate then that would be nice as well. I don't know much about bees and was just hoping someone would be able to answer this question for me. thanks in advance
