Hi from Florida
« on: December 12, 2010, 10:52:04 PM »
I live in Titusville and started in bees around May of this year. I had a swarm make home in a wire spool at work. My boss was going to call and get them killed so I stepped up and asked if I could have them. Then I found Bee source and found a beek in Palm bay that would sell me bees for a hive box I built. Then in a month or so I split that hive and the rest is history. I have 2 hives at my house that I am going to be moving to Mims in a week or two.The spool is on my property in Mims. I am going to try and get the bees out of the spool next year. Wish me luck. I am full of Questions so get ready.

Hi robbee, I'm Scott and I spoke to you a while back about helping with that spool of yours? I'm sorry that I haven't gotten back to you but I lost your # somehow. I'm glad to see you made it over here! PM me when you can and we'll get together eh?

I've still got bees in the Mims/ Scottsmoor/ Oak hill area so I'm around a good bit.

Oh, I get it. You found a "bee source" and the guy helped you with some bees.  ;)

Welcome to THE forum.

Hope you enjoy and learn lots.
