Shipping Bees out of Georgia

Georgia regulations do not require hives to be inspected before leaving the state. However, most states will not permit the entry of bee hives unless they have been inspected by the Plant Protection Section and found free of pests.

Bees entering Georgia

All bees entering Georgia must first be permitted to do so by the Plant Protection Section.

Please e-mail David Williams if you would like more information on a commercial apiary license or moving bees interstate.
