Honey Bee Program

Under provisions of the Mississippi Bee Disease Act, the Bureau carries out a program to prevent the introduction and spread of infectious and contagious diseases of honey bees.

Bureau personnel inspect colonies for American Foulbrood Disease and other serious bee pests such as mites. Migratory beekeepers, queen breeders and producers of package-bees are required to have inspection certificates before they can ship bees and used beekeeping equipment.
