Hello from Florida
« on: February 22, 2014, 01:02:13 AM »
I live in Inglis, Florida, about 60 miles north from Tampa. I was a beekeeper in upstate New York for 15 years, with varying degrees of success. Left beekeeping and New York moved to Florida and got started down here  with two nucs.

Welcome Barry. Would love to hear as you go along about the differences you experience between keeping bees up North and down South.
