I learned this week that in the Great State of Florida, that if you purposely manipulate the bees to raise queens, you are supposed to be registered as a queen breeder (for another $25). You also have to have samples taken and tested. Even if you raise them only for yourself. This is an attempt to force Fl. beekeepers to follow Mr. Jerry Hays'es Best Management Practices of all queens being of know origin and marked. Presumably to cutail the spread of AHB.
