The Suncoast Beekeepers Association is dedicated to promoting and supporting beekeepers in Manatee and Sarasota Counties, Florida. We provide an informational and social venue for beekeepers of all experience levels. Some members are new beekeepers while others are professionals with many years of experience. Suncoast Beekeepers promotes best beekeeping management practices and offers education, encouragement and mentoring to people who want to be involved with honeybees. 


Support Honeybee Research

Today, honeybees and beekeepers are locked in an unprecedented battle with pests, parasites, insecticides, Africanized bees and Colony Collapse Disorder. These problems affect all beekeepers, causing unsustainable losses of 30 to 50% of the hives per year. Considering that 1/3 of food production in the US is dependent on honeybees, the funding of research is paramount for local beekeeping associations.
