Apiary Establishment Request

Use the form below to submit a request to establish a new apiary location or relocate an existing apiary.


Provide GPS coordinates in decimal format with 5 digits following the decimal. Ex.  Latitude: 44.26083, Longitude: -72.58049

GPS coordinates are best obtained by using Google maps. Obtaining coordinates with handheld GPS device or smartphone in the field is not recommended, as calibrations can be inconsistent  across devices. If a field device is used, it is recommended to verify the field coordinates with Google Maps.  For best results, it is recommended to use a desktop computer, satellite view layer, and a map scale of 100ft to locate the precise area for the proposed apiary. 

See example below:

Google Maps GPS Example
