Keeping Bees

Dogs & Animals

Registering your hives

If you keep bees and you live in New Zealand it is a legal requirement that you register your hive(s).

Apiary sites must be registered with the Management Agency. Registration is free, but there is a small charge to the beekeeper per colony,  which funds the National American Foulbrood Pest Management Strategy Agency.

Please contact AFB for registration forms or more information.
