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. If the beekeeper has their apiary near a field that uses ground sprays, BeeCheck signs are also available for purchase. Fiberglass flag poles (8′) are available online for purchase. Suggested height is 8′.
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:
