I can't help you with the flow but there are several and most in FL start with maple bloom. As far as entering you need to have your bees inspected and you need the inspection certificate with the bees when entering at the ag station as when leaving with them. Sutton would(should) have your flow answers for you.
Beeslave is correct on the inspection certificate from your current state to enter FL with your bees. I am on the east coast across from Tampa so blooms should generally be close to the same:
Dec/Jan/Feb- maple and oak
Mar/April- orange blossom
July/August- cabbage palm
Sept/Oct brazilian pepper
Wildflowers all summer, cant remember when mangrove blooms. Hope this helps of course it is all weather dependant and subject to change.
Hmmm, thats a good question cause I know you are going to have to stop at an ag. check point or meet with a state inspector at some point. Maybe Sutton knows and will jump back on here. I don't leave the state with my bees but he runs out of state so he might have the answer to that. Good luck.
You can call Cathy at the office. THe first time I went down Lawrence Cutts was the chief honcho and he let me come in and inspection was done when I arrived. I would think Jerry Hayes would work with you, he is really a nice guy. call the office and cath can lead you in the right direction. Phone number is 352-372-3505 ext 114
