‘BEE’ Smart about Applying Insecticides Near Apiaries (07/16/20)

The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) has apiaries mapped in the state, so pesticide applicators/growers can find where the registered beehives of North Dakota are located and the contact information for that beekeeper.

The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) has apiaries mapped in the state, so pesticide applicators/growers can find where the registered beehives of North Dakota are located and the contact information for that beekeeper. If a field, especially in the flowering stage, has beehives nearby and it needs to be treated an insecticide for pest control, this map can help increase communication between pesticide applicators/growers and beekeepers, and help save honeybees from pesticide poisonings. Please see the NDDA link for the map:  https://ole.ndda.nd.gov/map
