Registering your beehives
A 2009 Iowa law is designed to protect honeybees from off-target pesticide applications by setting up a statewide, annual registry of all apiaries in Iowa, both commercial and hobby beekeepers.
The nonprofit company FieldWatch partners with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) to register apiaries via its BeeCheck program or DriftWatch, its sensitive crops program. Honey producers can register hives through either program, and registration is free.
