Honeybees are important to Arizona because Honey bee pollination increases the yield and quality of the agricultural crops. Native bees are important but they are solitary and can’t offer the work force of a Colony of 50,000 honeybees.
Arizona beekeeping is challenging with its extreme summer temperatures. Along with that, the constant fight with Africanized bees by beekeepers and our communities makes beekeeping very difficult for both commercial and backyard beekeepers.
We can Make a Difference
Arizona Backyard Beekeepers Association is dedicated to supporting bees and beekeepers through education, research and cooperation. We are dedicated to saving the honey bees, and improving genetics of Africanized bees.
Help us Help Bees
The money we raise from this license plate will help us to provide a facility for both beekeeper and community education as well as for collecting data for researching ways to improve honeybee health, offer insight into dealing with Africanized colonies, and train beekeepers for the advancement of Arizona bees.
