Program Designed To Prevent Bee Colonies From Accidental Pesticide Exposure

During the past few decades, the loss of pollinators including honey bees, native bees, birds, bats, and butterflies has posed a threat to agricultural stability and economics

Already working with the departments of agriculture in several states, Kelly Registration Systems has developed an application to map beehives and allow pesticide applicators to notify beekeepers of applications in the area to help prevent the accidental exposure of honey bees to pesticides. The official program is available next month and is being rolled out in other states as well.

With Kelly Registration Systems, once beekeepers, farmers, and pesticide applicators share their information, the program matches hive locations with areas that will receive pesticide applications. Using alerts, it lets applicators know which areas to avoid and helps beekeepers prevent or mitigate potential exposure.
