    I am not very experienced hobby beekeeper.
    I have my bees in Finland.
    I am interesting in training job for two-tree weeks on midsize or small beekeeping professional farm.
    I would like to train in caring bees and study a professional honey making.

    I will be available for this on October - November.

    I am authorized to work in the USA.

    I will be grateful if you can help me with this issue.

    It would be helpful if we knew where you were at in the USA, there are quite a few commercial apiaries in the states.

    you might need to locate someone in Australia to have anything going at that time year. quite typically here during october and november everything is either being wrapped up in the northern states or being moved south by the migratory crowd.

    looking for beeking apprentance work in US during the late fall is a tough assignment, South America will be starting their main nectar flow as well as Australia, in the southern states, Florida, Alabama, and other states located in the deep south, will be working the hives for winter, to buildup for the earliest nectar flows in late January/ Feb preparing to make splits, or Nucs in late March
    Good Luck

    I have to agree with the others, the states is not the place to be at that time. Are you having trouble with one thing or the other? Commercial beekeepers and hobbyists don't always do things the same way, ask some questions maybe we can help.

    Thanks everybody.

    I thought that in south states like Florida or Taxis or California season is longer.

    I can go some time in September. But this time I have to prepare for winter my bees in Finland.

    I should be in the USA up to November in any case and I wanted to use this time for training. If it is possible it will be great.
    For example I can study honey making process, equipment, some marketing issue.
    Certainly I would like to work with bees but if it is impossible other sides of business is interesting for me also.

    One more question. Absolutely new information for me is about moving bees from north to south. Would you please explain this?
