Florida Bee Inspection1


Malcolm T. Sanford2


The Florida Division of Plant Industry, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Services, has broad
powers under the law to deal with bee disease and
pests. It routinely inspects thousands of colonies each
year, has the authority to enter depots and make such
inspections, and may require the removal and/or
destruction of exposed or infected bees or equipment.
An indemnity provision exists in the law to
compensate for property destroyed by the Division in
its effort to control American foulbrood.

By law, ALL BEEKEEPERS IN FLORIDA
MUST BE REGISTERED with the Division of Plant
Industry. Entry of bees into Florida is tightly
regulated. A permit must be acquired by making
application, providing a certificate of inspection from
the state of origin, and agreeing to keep the shipment
intact until inspected in Florida. Moving equipment
within the state requires a permit validated the
calendar year of the move.

The Florida bee law benefits the entire
beekeeping industry, and it is principally due to strict
enforcement that bee disease occurrence is
consistently kept at a low level. The state bee
inspectors, therefore, should be given a great deal of
credit for their service to the industry. Anyone
purchasing bees or used equipment in Florida should
have them inspected. More details on Florida bee
diseases and pests are available from the Apiary
Bureau, Mr. Laurence Cutts, Chief, Division of Plant
Industry, 1911 S. W. 34th Street, P. O. Box 147100,
