Yellow-and-black BeeCheck flags are currently offered through registration of apiaries to identify the locations of honeybee hives that are near crop fields. These flags serve as a visible reminder to farmers and pesticide applicators that honeybees and other pollinators are present in the area.
Once a beekeeper registers their hive location, BeeCheck flags are available through the fieldwatch.com website for $9 + shipping. Fiberglass flag poles (8′) are available online for purchase.
The Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program will reimburse costs of bee flags and poles up to $25. You must submit proof of payment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clarification for obtaining BeeCheck flags
BeeCheck flags are available for purchase ($9 + shipping) only following registration of the apiary through FieldWatch. Without registration the aerial or ground pesticide application will not have the lat/long of the hive to locate it while they are flying/driving. Per an email from FieldWatch:
