Our Mission Statement

Brevard Backyard Beekeepers Inc. is a 501(c) (7) nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and foster the science-based, sustainable, best management practices for beekeeping; and to protect and conserve the future of the honeybee population. 

We provide a venue to collaborate, educate and support participating beekeepers and facilitate the sharing of scientific knowledge by advocating best practices in the management of honeybees.  We provide public education about the importance of honeybees by sharing knowledge about how to protect and conserve the natural environment for the health and welfare of local honeybee populations.

Brevard Backyard Beekeepers Inc. is not authorized to remove or eradicate bees for a private property owner. However, FDACS maintains a list of Registered Beekeepers and Certified Pest Control Operators who perform bee removal and/or eradication services. Here is a link.
