Important Message for all Members ! 

Join a committee to help our club meet its goal of educating society about the importance of bees.  Help spread the word about our beautiful pollinators and help others to understand why the bees are so very important.   Florida's agricultural economy is estimated at 120 billion a year.  It starts with bees and pollination.  We have several outreach programs ahead, we would like to help promote a new state of the art FL. Bee lab.  Please volunteer and help us promote Bee Awareness! Thank you for supporting our club.

There is an App for that....

Found a App for bee hive management, is called BEE APPY for iPhone/iPad and Android. Place for inspections, pictures ask question like the last time the queen was spotted, how many frames have capped brood, uncapped brood, large ..time of day, weather, temperament and more...I just found it today,seems user friendly. So if you are a app geek like me you should check it out, was less than 4.00. There is another one for 14.00 but it did not really explain or show you what you can do with it.See More

At what point to i worry?I have purchased some tent poles to ratchet the hives if needed. and to close  up the entrance etc. what else are you doing? If anything. (and not just for this hurricane any)....See More

Termite Tenting & Bee Hives

Our house has termites and needs to be tented.  Does anyone have knowledge or experience for how far away from the tented structure the bees need to be to survive?Continue

Swarm trap questions.

Started by Johnnie Keating in Buy-Sell-Trade. Last reply by Doug yesterday. 2 Replies

My husband wants to build a swarm trap/box. Is it the same size as a 5 frame NUC? Should the lid be screwed down? Can you use Lemongrass EO or should it be fresh Lemongrass? And does it need to be up in a tree or can it be on a stand near the ground?
