Information for growers 

BeeConnected

BeeConnected is a private messaging service to connect registered beekeepers with registered farmers and contractors, enabling two-way communication on the location of hives and crop protection product activities.

BeeConnected can be used to identify nearby crop/hive locations and facilitate communication between spray applicators and beekeepers on planned activities. This communication allows for spray applicators and beekeepers to undertake pro-active steps to reduce risk for bees and hives.

BeeConnected can be used to help spray applicators meet pesticide label requirements to notify beekeepers of an intended spray, where there is potential for managed bees to be affected by the spray or spray drift.

Bee Connected is an initiative of CropLife Australia, and AHBIC is an official partner.
