Apiary Registration and Inspection
The apiary inspection and registration program is designed to prevent the introduction or establishment of honey bee diseases, parasites or undesirable races of honey bees. Apiary inspection is the only way to accurately assess the health of the bee colony. The owners of beehives containing live honey bees that are located within Connecticut must register the location of the beehives with the Office of the State Entomologist each year on or before October first. To comply with the requirements, write to the Office of the State Entomologist, The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, P. O. Box 1106, New Haven, CT 06504-1106 or phone (203) 974-8479 during any weekday between the hours of 8:30 a.m.4:30 p.m. There is no fee for registration or inspection.
