Beekeeper Information

The City of Portsmouth understands the vital role that bee's have as pollinators.  Please help us keep the bees safe by informing us where there are hives located within city limits.  This information will be used by our department to create a buffer zone around hives to ensure that no harm is done.

Hive Locations should be called in at 757-393-8666.

Please feel free to contact us if there are any additional questions that you have.
