Anyone on here in the honeybee industry? I plan on taking the Master Beekeeper course when we get there and would love any advice or contact info or info on where you have to live on the island to have hives and how many can you have? Just any info would be great !! Thanks!!
I know several beekeepers on island, we have quite a strong bee community here,

Grantley and Toni you can meet at their farm stands in Southgate on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. If you'd like phone numbers PM me and I can send them to you.
I've worked with Wanda Wright. She's great. Been doing this forever. Makes Honey Wine, Honey Mustard and, of course, HONEY...
Had a hive under my porch awhile back. She and her team came and scooped them up along with the honey. Transplanted them to a better place. Only got chased around the house by a soldier bee once while I was watching/photographing the extraction. She said it was a small hive; only about 20k. Sheesh!
Here's a link to help save honeybees:
Not sure how well this applies to this thread but it's about bees. About a month ago we went to the Annaberg ruins and they were closed due to bees. It doesn't bother me so much as I can go whenever I want. But, that day, there were 3 safari full of visitors who weren't able to see the ruins. Maybe a beekeeper would be able to assist in their relocation so people do not miss out on the historical sites?
