Hi guys:

can any one advise: well give some imput as to how thi sshould look?
I want an loos and friendly understanding between land owner and beekeeper.

somthing like this ??

This agreement is between landowner_________________________

and - YOU
The purpose of this agreement is for understanding of both parties that the beekeeper will place bee hives on the landowner’s property to provide free pollination of whatever plants the landowner has on said property. The beekeeper is provided with a place to put the hives with access. All products or proceeds from the hives are the beekeeper's property to do with as he/she sees fit.
The beekeeper will:
1) Assume all responsibility with the placement of the hives on the landowners property.
2) Be responsible for the maintenance of the hives.
3) Be respectful of the landowners property including fences, cropland and livestock.
4) Close all gates after passing through in a timely manner.
5) Only use designated and agreed upon roadways to travel to the bee hives.
6)Avoid accessing the bee hives after a heavy rain until the roadways have dried enough to travel such roadways without doing unnecessary damage unless its a emergency.(IE-hurricane etc)
7)Remove all hives and equipment from the landowners property within 60 days’ notice should the landowner desire such for any reason.
Cool Keep the bee yard neat and tidy and not place unused and unnecessary equipment or debris on the landowners property.
The land owner will:
1) Provide property for the beekeeper to place hives on.
2) Provide access to the hives for the beekeeper year round as best he/she can.
3) Allow the beekeeper to remove his/her hives anytime for any reason should the bee keeper need to.
4) Notify beekeeper of any damages by calling _your phone number__ as soon as possible so the beekeeper can try to fix the damage and save the bees, (floods, winds, vandals, wildlife) within reason.
This agreement is an open-ended contract and does not expire.

Property the hives will be placed on is located at:

Quality Top Bar Hives by Andrew Vidler

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
