Are you a commercial beekeeper?
No, I strived to be a sideline beekeeper at best. I had about 10 of my own, but managed 30-100 for university apiaries. My main focus was honey bee health research. I specialized in pest management (varroa, small hive beetle, wax moth) during my time in Florida.
My personal focus now is to investigate the impacts on bee health and behavior of other/new hive setups other than langstroth that could be more beneficial to better beekeeping practices. My secondary focus is to investigate the productivity and create stock for lesser used races of managed honey bees like Carniolans and Caucasians and even hybrids like Buckfast and Starlines.
