Does anyone know if it is illegal or restricted in any way to carry beehives (2) from Tennessee to Georgia? My brother-in-law wants to bring me two hives and we have been told that it is illegal to do so. Anybody with any information / experience on this?
I am a commercial beekeeper and as far as I know ala. don't allow bees on the comb going thru. but can ship queens thru.
fla. you need a permit.
I would bring them in and get a ga inspection in spring.
Just on the practical side here... What cop WANTS to pull over a truck with beehives in it? I wouldn't worry too much about it. But thats just one convicts opinion.
