This is the current (currently) posted NJDEP NJ Regulations. I registered my two hives and surprisingly there was no fee. The registration is shared with NJDEP's pesticide people and if registered before Mar. 1st, any licensed applicator has to notify the beekeeper of nearby planned spraying near ones' hives 48 hours in advance.
Hello Larry. It looks like we may be neighbors. Most of my hives are in Lawrence, but I recently put 2 in Princeton.
Have you joined any local chapter of the NJ Beeks Association? I believe some of the chapters offer distance training (due to COVID I don't think any chapters meet in person).
Hi Moe. Seems we are. My 16 year old daughter and took the 3 day class with the Essex County club February-March which primarily because we were too late for the Central Jersey one. We got in the first 2 classroom lessons but COVID hit and the field day was cancelled. The class was given by Land Simone of Gooserock Farm and she's been great with emails and videos on line. I have a good friend and former colleague in Montclair and he's been providing advice as have these forums. I'd like to join a chapter but my job is essential so I'm working more than ever. Any suggestions?
