Hello,

My name is Katherine. My tiny apriary is FL Bee Works. I have been on again off again with keeping bees. But after going through this past year with the pandemic, and developing PTSD, I feel the need to scale back my nocturnal nursing ways, and go full time into queen rearing.

Later this spring, I will be starting my AI journey to help grow my tiny apriary into a full fledge business. Crazy I know..but beekeeping is addictive.

Feel free to drop by to say Hi! 馃榿

I am sure you already have a plan on entering the Instrumental Insemination world, but I have always wanted to attend Sue Cobey鈥檚 II classes at Wash. State. Probably a pricey deal, but I would think it would be an incredible jump start.

Night nurse here too. At 59 years old I am certainly thinking of retiring. Best of luck and hope to see many posts from you here. Sounds very interesting and I imagine you will have many ups and downs.

Katherine, let us know where you are in central FL. Krispn Given (Perdue Ankle Biters) will be teaching a two day II class in Indiana in July and August. I imagine the class is similar to the one Sue teaches. Which II set up up are you considering?

Ha! I have a house in Silver Springs Shores just off of Emerald Dr. and Mericamp. I get down there once in a while to visit. In the future, I may try to overwinter some of my bees there.

Awesome.. what specialty? Cardiology MS here. I love being a nurse, however, it is time for me to get out.
Enjoy your retirement plan. Be prepared to work hard though! 馃檪馃悵

Awesome!!! Love to meet other beekeepers. There isnt a really organized bee community from what I've seen over the past 3 years, except for the Honey Bees of America. I think they have disbanded or went virtual since the pandemic. My main apriary I am building in Anthony, but I do keep my original hives in my backyard. Will move those girls out to make room for my breeder queens in May. Super excited!!!馃榿

Welcome to the forum, Katherine. I do take consolation in the fact that beekeeping is one of the few almost universally socially-acceptable addictions...

Admitting you have a problem is the first part of the cure- more bees 馃槈.

On a serious note, we are glad to have you a part of the Beesource community and best of success in your queen rearing efforts.

Russ
