Pensacola beekeeping

EscaRosa Beekeepers Association 

****Antibiotic prescriptions -a special thank you to the University of Florida for finding a way for beekeepers to continue to get the required antibiotics for our bees without having to spend money on vet visits! This program is done in conjunction with the Florida Department of Agriculture, so you must be registered with the state to receive the free prescription.  www.honeybeevfd.com  

 Bee Registration  - All hives must be registered with the Department of Agriculture.  This allows us to keep all of our bees healthy. Please read more on their site about the inspection and cost.  It is a very nominal fee.  http://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Plant-Industry/Business-Services/Registrations-and-Certifications/Beekeeper-Registration
