    Re: Legal threat to move bees out of town

    Some state laws define honeybees as livestock. If livestock is not permitted in an area and honeybees are considered livestock, then they wouldn't be permitted in that area.

    Yep, you can reuse them. Steam clean or pressure wash them out... some queen breeders use them again and others don't. They are plastic, they can be sanitized.
