Hi. I'm currently looking for a job during the months of January and February and am very interested in Apiculture. I'm attending Bennington College and would love to work with bees for my Field Work Term, which is basically our winter term where all students find jobs for two months. I don't even necessesarily need any pay, I just want to learn more about this field of work.

Anyone able to help out, please let me know. My email is sam@markdionne.com

Where are you located?  Most places there isn't anything to do in the winter.  Maybe you might put some pollen patties on in February, but that's about it.

I live in MA but am willing to travel south where I thought more might be happening. I don't know, this may be a futile cause, seeing as bees don't do much in the winter.

There are a couple of Bee Keepers in MA and one that I know if VT that travel south for the winter with their Bees.  As to how to get a hold of them, and figure out whether you would be of any use them that is another story.  Try U-Mass Ag dept. to see if they have a list of large opperations providing polination services.

Drapers in Northern PA lost a key employee.  Whether or not they are planning on replacing him/her is beyond me, but you might want to talk to them.  They are selling a lot of their hives due to this situation.

Start another post and mention something about Florida beekeepers.  They work year round.

Look in Bee Culture or ABJ. I always see an ad for help in Hawaii.
Kona Queen or something....

Down here in Florida there are some orange blooms just around the corner and surely some beekeepers need some help.  Over at the BeeLab in UF Dr. Hall is working a HUGE apiary for varroa studies and resistance traits pretty much by himself...maybe there's an opening.
