Re: Florida Beekeeper Registration
The inspectors in Fl. are a tremendous resource, mine, is I think, 3rd generation beekeeper. Knows what healthy bees looked like before mites. Want to make splits, raise queens make honey, move hives, who has local queens, how to check for mites, what to do about shb how far away are the closest hives how to feed, what’s in bloom, who needs pollination, any afb or efb in the area etc. Our retired state inspector Lawrence Cutts invented the Cutts Beetle blaster (I have no connection to the company) however they do promote all the latest chems and are rooting for Monsanto’s GMO bees. Anyway the fee is way beyond cheep. Cheaper than the Peen state course plus they let ya know how your bees are. I don’t know if they’re much help with commercial guys but the newbee ?the cat’s meow, bee’s knees.
I’m really not that serious
