Re: Got a Visit from the Bee Inspector.
Please be aware the inspector recommended treatment, not required it. This was not the government FORCING anyone to treat their bees, a rather too emotive and inaccurate statement.

And Ace. "State inspectors are essentially commercial operators that have had slash and burn ingrained into their training. They know no other way". I've seen you drop a few humdingers but that one is one of the most uneducated statements I've seen on this forum.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
