If you are a beekeeper in NH and treat for mites and other pests you are required to have a Pesticide Applicators Permit in order to sell your honey. If you are the sole applicator in your apiary and do not apply pesticides for others than the permitting process is easy, quick and affordable. These beekeepers require a Private Applicator Permit.
To get your Private Applicator Permit simply fill out and mail this form: https://www.agriculture.nh.gov/publications-forms/documents/private-applicator-permit.pdf
Don't forget to include the $20 non-refundable fee.
Once permitted, you need to renew yearly and submit an end of year usage report. This process is very easy for most beekeepers and the Pesticide Division team is always available to answer your questions. You can contact them here:

If you apply pesticides on the property of another, you must obtain a Commercial Applicator Permit. If you sell pesticides you must obtain a Dealer Permit.
