Owners of apiaries are required to register with the Agricultural Commissioner and document the location of their hives so we can notify them of pending pesticide applications and other concerns affecting their bees.

When bees are visiting a site scheduled for an application with a pesticide that is toxic to bees, please give at least 48 hour advance notice.  U.C. Davis IPM bee precaution pesticide ratings can be used to determine if the pesticide you are using is harmful to bees or their brood.
