Southern Florida Beekeepers

Any other Southern Florida Beekeepers yet? I’m in SW FL. We are new to bees, but learning quick. My husband is taking a beekeeping course through the local bee group soon. I think we’ve checked out every book our local library has. We had a swarm move into our city water cover. We built a basic hive to save them until our Flow is ready and should be moving them in this week.


im in south east florida in Davie. Nice to hear you got some free bees and will be ready!

I’m also in SWF. Very new to all this. Bought a box to move some wild bees into it that are living in my friends abandoned trailer. Haven’t tackled the task yet. Considering volunteering to help out other local bee keepers who have a lot of hives to get familiar with it first.
So far all I’ve done is watch my brother who keeps African bees in belize. I want to get hands on. Sounds better than the books I’ve read.


You are on the right track Felicity. Hands on is the best way.

Our local organization is having an Intro Beekeeping course starting May 30th :slight_smile: My husband is signed up to go. We’re in Lee County. @Felicity Where are you?


Hi guys, I’m in north Miami. I’m very new to this and eager to learn! I did reach out to a local beekeeper for help. Glad to see there are others in the area!

Hey everyone,

We are in Palm Beach County, we have one established hive now (after a bumpy start) getting ready for out 2nd in the next week or so. Looking forward to getting the complete Flow by the end of the year. We think our first hive will be ready to split by then.

I wish everyone best wishes when you get your Flow and hope you keep us all posted on your progress.

Miss Johnnie- Did you ever receive your Flow? I’m also in PB, and would like to know your opinions of it.

Hello , My name is Melissa & I am looking for someone within 1.5 hour drive from the Tampa Bay Area , who has a flow hive and May be willing to share with us how it’s going, maybe give a mini lesson or more what ever you are comfortable with. We will be doing the online flow education as well, but I am looking for some hands on learning For my three children and I. I am currently looking at options for classes and training so we can set up our own hive before years end . Please if you know of someone or are interested reach out we are anxious to get started!
