Sorry for the delay in getting this letter to you but please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your generous support of the most recent Beginning Bee Class representing All Florida Bee Removal. The snacks you provided for the break out sessions at the September 19, 2009 UF Short Course were greatly appreciated by all. In addition, thank you for your presentation on “personal experiences” working with Africanized bees.
Especially notable is your company’s continued support of backyard beekeeping. This is “right on target” with the UF/IFAS philosophy that will be Florida beekeepers which offer the best hope to limiting the impact of feral Africanized Honeybees in our state – they will be our “front line troops!” Thank you for helping us to encourage more people to take up this role.
Once again, thanks to you and your company for their generous support of this University of Florida Regional Short Course.
