*UPDATE* We are in the process of setting up an account for the pollinator program. Currently, there is no account ready to accept money for the flag poles. With that said, we are going to be GIVING AWAY POLES TO THE FIRST 200 PERSONS WHO REGISTER THROUGH DRIFTWATCH and purchase a flag.
You MUST bring proof of flag purchase with you to pick up a flag pole. If you purchased 1 flag, you get one pole. If you purchased 25 flags, you get 25 poles, etc. YOU NEED TO PICK UP THESE POLES AT THE DELTA RESEARCH CENTER IN PORTAGEVILLE, OR THE MAIN EXTENSION OFFICE IN COLUMBIA FOR YOU TO GET THE FREE POLES. PLEASE CALL THE EXTENSION OFFICE OR DR. JONES @ 573-379-5431 TO LET THEM KNOW HOW MANY POLES YOU NEED.
Clarification for obtaining BeeCheck flags
BeeCheck flags are available for purchase ($9 + shipping) only following registration of the apiary through FieldWatch. Without registration the aerial or ground pesticide application will not have the lat/long of the hive to locate it while they are flying/driving.
