These girls have been going gangbuster! From a swarm to giving up about 100# of honey in three months. I recently split them and now the split is taking off too!

Usually it is so, so windy near beaches that I always wonder how the bees fly around. They sure seem to be bringing in lots of stuff.
Great hive Scott!!

Allen, NSB has one of those stupid laws that we all love to break grin

Maybe this is what Spicoli meant by "a tasty wave and a cool buzz"
You said there is a lot of Palmetto. Do they get something from it? I have acres of it around here.

I love New Smyrna Beach! Growing up in Orlando, I spent many, many a weekend there as a young person. Didn't know they had an anti-beekepper law. Just curious--what's the motivation for those laws? Are the lawmakers worried (however misguidedly) about attacks and swarms? Seems like NSB, even to a non-beekeeper, would seem a great place to keep bees, what with all the vegetation and open area...

Something I was thinking about while riding in the mud Saturday.   With those sand dunes, can SHB reproduce in that sand salt environment?

Allen, the SHB have to be pupating somewhere 'cause they're thick in the area...I suppose the salt doesn't hurt 'em much.

Honeytree, I was born in Winter Park and mostly raised in NSB and Maitland. I live in Osteen now. If you took the back way to NSB and passed Skip's boots...I'm 2 miles from there.

The head Agriculturist of the Fl Dept of AG (Jerry Hayes) has recommended the extermination of feral colonies and swarms. I believe this is to help stem the spread of AHB as well as diseases and that might explain the ordinance.

Of course I never go near swarms or feral colonies grin

Huh. Jerry Hayes was the speaker last month at my local club's meeting. Well, if I meet him again, I just might ask him to tell me more about his ideas about feral colonies and swarms.  Smiley
