FLORIDA: The weather for the month was a little warmer than
normal with precipitation slightly higher than normal. There was
still not very much rain, as December is typically a dry month in
Florida. Bee health was considered to be very good. Beekeepers were
splitting hives and treating for mites in preparation for the annual
trip to California for almond pollination with many hives being
relocated shortly after the middle of next month. There were few
sources of food, except for scattered wild flowers and some maple.
The maple bloom appeared to be about a week earlier than normal.
Citrus greening was causing some early premature orange bloom, but
no honey was being produced from that source. The next source of
food for honey production will be citrus, primarily orange blossom,
in March. There was essentially no honey being produced for sale and
practically no stored honey available for sale. Demand remains good
with supplies very light and prices remaining at or near record
