Beekeepers voluntary registration

To assist bee inspectors with their inspections and disease surveillance, the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs is encouraging beekeepers to register their apiaries on DataBees.

Registering on DataBees

The Department is encouraging the voluntary registration of beekeepers and their apiaries on DataBees to help the Bee Inspectorate with their inspections and disease surveillance. This will assist with pest and disease control, tracing introduction and spread, and allow us to alert registered beekeepers of disease or pest outbreaks.

The DAERA Bee Health program is for the benefit of all beekeepers who keep Apis mellifera bees in Northern Ireland. There is no fee for this registration, or for any statutory control inspections.

Please only sign up to DataBees if your apiary/apiaries are in Northern Ireland
