I'm looking to see if there are any other beekeepers in Georgia or Florida. I keep asking people here questions but the problem i am having is that most replies i get are from people from way up north and i appreciate all the help but their advise does not always work down here in the bipolar Florida/Georgia weather. So i am looking for Beekeepers in the lower states so if i have a problem i know who to ask for a special questions.

it does, i am trying to connect to other keepers from the hotter southern states like yours to get their advise on subjects that the northern states dont have due to lack of heat and humidity and so on.

I'm south of you. Central west coast.
Ask away I've got lots of answers ( I'm sure that at least one of them may possibly be partially correct in some situations)!

Tallahassee. Same latitude as Jax.

I agree that our situation can be unique. For instance, our season starts so much earlier! I have already done a little micro – harvest of four frames of honey. We will be done just about the time the rest of the world is kicking in.

Local Gall berry poppin like crazy.
Palmetto blooms about to burst, most buds are almost set.
Blackberry popped early this year, was busy scrambling the first round of swarm and missed out this time. 5 fold increase was worth it. 2nd round swarms never hit me, got one of the bosses to take home:) .

Yeah, swampies are a little different bunch, arent we.

Oh yeah, n dang luv bugs are back in force, yaaayyy
