We are currently accepting applications for 2021 Beekeeper's Licenses.

  • Applications are due before entry into the state


If you wish to keep bees in ND, you will need to submit the following documents along with all associated licensing fees before receiving a North Dakota Beekeeper's License:

  • Application for Beekeeper's License
  • Application for Registration of Apiary Locations


If you need a Health Certificate once leaving the state (to enter another state) please contact our office at least 30 days prior to leaving the state to ensure adequate time to conduct an inspection.


Applications can also be submitted online through the ND Bee Map.  If you had a license in 2020 you already have a claim code for your account, please contact Samantha.
