just a quick question, I used to keep bees up north in new york years back so being here in Sarasota florida now ( southwest florida) was wonder if theres ever a time when somethings not flowering in this little part of heaven I live in? I realy never actualy gets cold enough for very long for the bees not to be flying around year round.

rast or AmericanBeekeeper would be the best reference for your question. from what I can recall of central Florida (way to many years ago to admit) there were dearth periods when things were extremely thin generally associated with the dry periods of the year.

Thnx alot every1 for the info, since it does not seem like the bees will be slowing down much during the hole year I think Im gonna use those great nuc plans on the forum (thnx Dcoates) and put up a few swarm traps all the time and maybe start a few new hives off the 2 I have now soon
