Our members reside in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties in Florida as well as surrounding counties in Alabama. Our monthly meetings are held in Pensacola, FL. We are comprised of individuals and families, young and old, who share an interest in beekeeping, pollination, honey production, and other products of the beehive.

It was quite a success. We had a great deal of fun, food and entertainment. Looking forward to doing it again next year. Escarosa Beekeepers Association BeeFest 2012 On August 18th, 2012, the Escarosa Beekeepers’ Association set up shop in lovely and historic downtown Pensacola at the Palafox Farmer's Market, in the Martin Luther King Plaza, in celebration of National Honeybee Day. For six hours, our little group of beekeepers entertained the crowds with honey samples, an observation hive, and some fun honeybee artwork giveaways. The day was a resounding success. Two of the most often asked questions were: (1) How are the bees? and (2) How can I start beekeeping? We saw hundreds of people, passed out literature, fielded questions and shared recipes for delicious honey goodies. Several of our beekeepers donated honey to be sold at the event, with all proceeds going to benefit the club. We're looking forward to bringing a 4 foot observation hive next year. Come check us out. National Honey Bee Day 2012 People, Plants and Pollinators Check out this University of Florida Native Pollinator Site Highly Contagious Honey Bee Virus Transmitted by Mites ScienceDaily (June 7, 2012) — Researchers at the University of Sheffield have discovered a parasitic mite has caused the deformed wing virus to proliferate in honey bee colonies. This association is now thought to contribute to the world-wide spread and probable death of millions of honey bee colonies. The current monetary value of honey bees as commercial pollinators in the United States alone is estimated at about $15-$20 billion annually. The research conducted in Hawaii by researchers from the University of Sheffield, the Marine Biological Association, the Food and Environment Research Agency and the University of Hawaii, and reported in the journal Science, showed how the Varroa mite caused deformed wing virus (DWV) -- a known viral pathogen -- to increase its frequency among honey bee colonies from 10 per cent to 100 per cent. This change was accompanied by a million-fold increase in the number of virus particles infecting each honey bee and a massive reduction in viral strain diversity leading to the emergence of a single virulent DWV strain. Dr Stephen Martin, of the University of Sheffield's Department of Animal and Plant Sciences said: "Just 2,000 mites can cause a colony containing 30,000 bees to die. The mite is the biggest problem worldwide for bee keepers; it's responsible for millions of colonies being killed. "Understanding the changing viral landscape that honey bees and other pollinators face will help beekeepers and conservationists worldwide protect these important insects. We have discovered what happens at the start of an infection. The goal is to understand how the infection comes about so that we can control it. "Deformed Wing Virus is naturally transmitted in bees through feeding or sex but the mites change the disease so it becomes more deadly, shortening the bees' lives." As the mite and new virulent strain of the virus becomes established across the Hawaiian Islands the new emerging viral landscape will mirror that found across the rest of the world where the Varroa mite is now established. This ability of a mite to permanently alter the honey bee viral landscape may by a key factor in the recent colony collapse disorder (CCD) and over-wintering colony losses (OCL) as the virulent pathogen strain remains even after the mites are removed. Beekeepers are now officially FARMERS and protected under HB 7215 Passed (signed by Governor 6-23-11) providing penalties for the theft of bee colonies of registered beekeepers; redefining the term "farmer" to include a person who grows or produces honey; redefining the term "farm theft" to include the unlawful taking possession of equipment and associated materials used to grow or produce certain farm products. VIEW BILL ` Questions about Honey Labels??? Here are the Answers!!! Go to: Bees 'Self-Medicate' When Infected With Some Pathogens ScienceDaily (Mar. 30, 2012) — Research from North Carolina State University shows that honey bees "self-medicate" when their colony is infected with a harmful fungus, bringing in increased amounts of antifungal plant resins to ward off the pathogen. "The colony is willing to expend the energy and effort of its worker bees to collect these resins," says Dr. Michael Simone-Finstrom, a postdoctoral research scholar in NC State's Department of Entomology and lead author of a paper describing the research. "So, clearly this behavior has evolved because the benefit to the colony exceeds the cost." Wild honey bees normally line their hives with propolis, a mixture of plant resins and wax that has antifungal and antibacterial properties. Domesticated honey bees also use propolis, to fill in cracks in their hives. However, researchers found that, when faced with a fungal threat, bees bring in significantly more propolis -- 45 percent more, on average. The bees also physically removed infected larvae that had been parasitized by the fungus and were being used to create fungal spores. Researchers know propolis is an effective antifungal agent because they lined some hives with a propolis extract and found that the extract significantly reduced the rate of infection. And apparently bees can sometimes distinguish harmful fungi from harmless ones, since colonies did not bring in increased amounts of propolis when infected with harmless fungal species. Instead, the colonies relied on physically removing the spores. However, the self-medicating behavior does have limits. Honey bee colonies infected with pathogenic bacteria did not bring in significantly more propolis -- despite the fact that the propolis also has antibacterial properties. "There was a slight increase, but it was not statistically significant," Simone-Finstrom says. "That is something we plan to follow up on." There may be a lesson here for domestic beekeepers. "Historically, U.S. beekeepers preferred colonies that used less of this resin, because it is sticky and can be difficult to work with," Simone-Finstrom says. "Now we know that this is a characteristic worth promoting, because it seems to offer the bees some natural defense." Choosing a Nest Site this excerpt taken from page 72 of "Honey bees select a new colony site as the last stage of swarming, or colony reproduction. Colonies generally swarm in late spring, when the old colony has an excess of workers and has become overcrowded. At that time a majority of the workers leave the nest with a queen and form a cluster, usually under an overhanging limb or in a snarl of branches. The swarm then faces a critical problem; it must quickly find a new nest site before the workers run out of honey carried in their honey stomachs or the swarm population will begin to dwindle as workers die. The swarm also has to choose a site in which the new colony can survive and grow for many years." Read more about honey bee swarms from our BEEINFO page.
