Winter Is a Good Time to Register your Bee Hives

Register Your Hives - It's the Law (and it's free!)

If you'll be engaging with beekeeping in any fashion, you should use the link below to register your hive.

What are the benefits of registering your hive?

Registration establishes your hives as having been based in a certain location for a documented period of time. Should zoning laws be passed, you may be able to claim that your apiary is grandfathered in. Should disease or a new infestation breaks out, you may be notified to treat your hives to prevent infection and help prevent further spreading of pathogens.

Registration is done online. First you establish an acount and after that it's a simple process. Please join us in making beekeeping in CT safer and more enjoyable for us all.
