    Default New from Oklahoma too...

    Hello All
    Just wanted to say hello and thanks for a wonderful site. I figured it was time to stop being a wallflower and post. I'm in the extreme southwest corner of the state and lemme tell you...it's hot! Over a week of triple digits and no end in site. I do not have a hive or anything yet. This is my reading, learning semester. I live in the city limits and there seems to be a 'no bee's allowed in residential area' sign coming from the city planning office. I emailed someone from the OK Beekeepers Association for assistance/guidance.
    Look forward to visiting the site and getting more insight on these incredible group of girls!

    KKD that should help you in your questions about what is allowed. Oklahoma Law for Beeks is very proactive.

    Get in touch with the Cooperative Extension in Jackson County and they can help you find the right contacts at the Ag Dept.

    Welcome to the forums. My bees are located in Caddo County I know all about the heat but still better than last year so far!

    Here is the specific language in the Act for the Brilliant Minds at City Hall

    2-3-125 - Local Government Regulations and Ordinances Regarding Honeybees and Hives
    No county, municipal corporation, consolidated government, or other political subdivision of this
    state shall adopt or continue in effect any ordinance, rule, regulation, or resolution prohibiting,
    impeding, or restricting the establishment or maintenance of honeybees in hives. This provision
    shall not be construed to restrict the zoning authority of a county or municipal government to
    establish appropriate locations for apiaries.
