NYS Apiary Industry Advisory Committee

August 2016


NOTE: much time was spent on the issue of American Foul Brood Disease; the NYS Pollinator Protection Plan was very briefly mentioned, and invasive species eradication was addressed.

*It was suggested that plants listed and targeted for eradication that are considered beneficial to beekeepers could possibly be spared if beekeepers submitted the economic yields or quantities of honey obtained to the DEC.
