In all honest there are sort of laws in many states that exist that are currently not enforced. In Va they have laws on transporting, selling, use of bees/hives for breeding that currently I know that are not being policed in accordance with state laws. The state section doesnt have the funding or man power to police the issues and only people that abide by the law will contact the state for inspections by state inspector. I think its more or less that the laws that exist are not being followed and if they were I dont know if it would make much of a difference however if they were enforced it might make a beekeeper having infected hives think twice of face a pretty good fine or prison. Most laws say 10K fine or up to so many years in prison.
