A message from David Tarpy on How to Protect Your Beehives From Mosquito Spraying Following a Hurricane.
Starting as soon as tomorrow, the state is paying to assist counties in spraying for mosquitoes. Hopefully, they will spray in late evening.
Here is a message that was sent to all chapter clubs for all members from Rick Coor the NCSBA President;
North Carolina Beekeepers,
The USDA has a program for beekeepers that have certain honey bee losses. Please refer to the Farm Service Agency’s Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program Fact Sheet for more information. The website is www.fsa.usda.gov/Assets/USDA-FSA-Public/usdafiles/FactSheets/2018/elap_fact_sheet_april2018.pdf
Please contact your local Farm Service Agency for assistance.
