Q for Florida beekeepers
« on: March 23, 2009, 07:59:53 AM »
Yesterday someone told me about a story heard on NPR about a woman "trapped in her house" by bees in Florida and that Florida law required all "feral" honeybees had to be exterminated as they are assumed to be AHB. I found the story, and checked a few FL ag sites, which had conflicting information (one said captured bees had to be requeened, another suggested extermination), but I couldn't find a "law."

Here's the story http://www-cdn.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=101888050. What's the deal?


On Pleasure
Kahlil Gibran
....
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.
People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.
