Rules and Regulation


The Utah Apiary Program conducts apiary inspections to help beekeepers diagnose pest and disease issues in their hives. These inspections help to better understand the health of honey bees and monitor for exotic honey bee pests in the State of Utah. Beekepeers may request an inspection from either the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food or their county bee inspector. Some counties do not have a bee inspector, if you need an inspection in one of the counties without a county inspector please contact a state inspector. 

There is no charge for inspections, testing services, or health certification.
