The DATCP Apiary Program works “with hobbyists, sideliners, commercial and migratory beekeepers to check for honey bee pests and diseases. They certify colonies leaving the state and check incoming bee colonies.” (Verbiage from Apiary Program website)

You can also find information for selling honey, links to honey producers and beekeeping groups and other information related to the care of honey bees and control of honey bee pests and diseases.  Visit our Pollinator Protection page to read the Wisconsin Pollinator Protection Plan and learn what you can do to help our pollinators.”
