Services for Beekeepers

  • Beekeepers Licence

    Honey bees play an essential role in agriculture, not only producing honey and beeswax but also pollinating a vast number of food crops.

    Beekeeping is a unique primary industry, depending on native flora for about 80% of its production. Nectar and pollen are produced seasonally and beekeepers must often move their hives large distances to be successful.

    NSW DPI's role is to provide support to the apiary industry through the provision of extension officers, research scientists, diagnostic laboratories, beekeeping courses and regulatory services
