Grower’s liability is limited to the fair market value of the bees and equipment, and shall apply fully in cases of violations of this contract or negligence on his part or farm employees, such as, but not limited to collisions with farm implements, fire, pesticide misuse, etc. Damages caused by factors outside grower's control, such as vandalism or theft by trespassers, bear loss, etc., shall be split 50-50 with beekeeper. Grower is responsible to notify beekeeper of damage or loss, upon discovery, and if he has knowledge of any human perpetrator, to provide the information he has. For the purpose of this contract, values are established as follows. Loss of bees with no damage to equipment $50. Loss of hive brood box, cover, and bottom board - $40. Each additional super - $20. If grower prefers bees to be removed immediately after bloom, please indicate date when bees are no longer needed. ______________________. If filled in, grower's liability ends 48 hours after noted date, except for willful acts.
Beekeeper's liability is limited to the price of the contract, and shall apply only in cases of violations of this contract, or negligence on his part. Because production is affected by many factors, no warrantee is expressed or implied concerning production of any crop.
Grower shall notify employees and other affected persons of the presence of the bees and the normal hazards of stinging. Grower shall assume responsibility for any problems that arise from stings. Beekeeper shall try to remove excessively mean colonies from pollination use, however, occasionally a colony requeens itself and becomes crossed with nasty wild bees. If a colony stings repeatedly without provocation, beekeeper shall replace it, upon notification.
Where applicable, grower is requested to notify field crews: 1) that bees are for pollination, not honey production, 2) that they may be treated with medications, and 3) that honey from these hives may be toxic as human food. (This also helps reduce thefts of honey frames, which weaken hives, and may cause starvation of the colonies.)
I hereby enclose my order and deposit. I have read the terms of this agreement and will abide by them.
