NC Apiary Notifications
The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services works to assist NC Beekeepers by providing advance notice of aerial pesticide applications. Beekeepers may register their apiary location to receive this information. Notification will take place when aerial applications occur using pesticides that carry a warning label with toxicity to bees. These notifications will occur when applications are within one-half mile of a registered apiary. If you would like to register your apiary, please complete the form found here.
