The African Honey Bee Extension & Education Program (AFBEE) is an extension and education cooperation between the University of Florida and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Plant Industry geared toward producing and distributing information about the African honey bee in Florida. We appreciate your patience as the site is being frequently updated.
