Mandatory Hive Registration
This is a serious issue that will affect all NYS beekeepers.
Unfortunately, only a few beekeepers are aware of the undertaking to reinstate mandatory registration, and that most beekeepers are being kept woefully uninformed and is some instances misinformed.
What many would like to see is for the State of New York to provide services for all beekeepers, and release information about disease info, spraying, and other programs which may affect honey bees such as tick control measures using pesticides-- all info which Albany possesses.
There is a website with an online petition, press articles, Q&A page, comments page, and contact info for your representatives.
