New to bee keeping, Barbados


#1

Hello I’m from Barbados which is hot all year round and dont have a winter .I want to start raising bees but I want to kno if my climate suits raising them


#2

Yes it does. There are lots of beekeepers in Hawaii, Thailand and the Philippines, who also have tropical climates. Plus many in Brazil, Africa and other tropical/subtropical zones.

Your problem will be finding a colony (nucleus or package) to start with. For that I would Google for a local beekeeping club, or live bee removal service (they are often beekeepers).

Thank you …there arent any beekeeping clubs here…I will have to import a starter colony package from the usa

Hi there :slight_smile:

You can do a search online for beekeepers or bee supplies in your area, e.g. google search “bees Barbados”.

Some of the swarm removal companies might have some bees for sale.
