Frequently Asked Questions

Doesn’t my homeowner’s insurance cover beekeeping?

Homeowner’s insurance companies are rarely comfortable covering beekeeping activities. While they might cover a sting or a swarm, they are likely to drop your coverage the first time this happens. It’s always a good idea to check with your homeowner’s insurance for specifics. Additionally, your homeowner’s policy has much lower limits and doesn’t cover product liability.

Why do I need insurance to sell my products?

Many markets and craft fairs will require you to have a certificate of liability if you want to be involved. This protects them against most liabilities at your booth. BeeInsure will cover not only their requirements but also covered liability associated with your product.

Why do I need beekeeping insurance?

No matter how safe or careful you are, there are risks associated with beekeeping, even in your own backyard. There’s potential liability associated with injury to others such as from allergic reactions to stings. Also, if you sell or give your honey or products to others, beekeepers insurance protects you against covered liabilities associated with those products.

How is your insurance program different from others?

Some programs tout that they allow you to take advantage of the USDA’s Apiculture Insurance program. While the program is useful, it only covers your honey production if there’s a decline in precipitation or forage growth. They don’t cover you for any of the bigger risks associated with beekeeping such as physical injury to others or liabilities caused from the products you make with your byproducts.
