Beehive registration in IowaIntegrated Crop Management News
AbstractThe Iowa Bee Rule was established in June 1980 to protect honey bees in Iowa from unnecessary insecticide poisoning. This rule created a mechanism for beekeepers to voluntarily register the location of their beehives. In turn, the state provided the beehive location information to pesticide applicators so they could communicate with beekeepers in advance of application of pesticides toxic to bees in the vicinity of registered hives.
