The mission of the Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory (HBREL) is to advance our understanding of managed honey bees and wild bees in Florida, the U.S. and globally, with a goal of improving the health and productivity of bee pollinators everywhere. The lab addresses this goal by conducting basic and applied research projects on bees, communicating its findings to assorted clientele groups through diverse extension programming and training future generations of bee educators, researchers, conservationists and more.
