Tom Troiani, a Clearwater beekeeper who keeps three hives in his yard, and another 22 on a large, vacant piece of property in Pinellas Park, agrees with Westervelt. "It's a good year for the bees. I've seen a lot of swarms," he said. Along with managing his hives, Troiani, 60, runs a bee removal service and works as a registered queen bee breeder, charging $25 per queen. Because of the importance of the queen, the state encourages beekeepers to replace her once a year with a queen from Department of Agriculture certified stock. (Tampa Tribune)
