If you get AFB (and you won't know it, since you cannot inspect) and spread it to other beeks in the area, you are going to get an earful.
Skeps will be burned at once by the bee inspector in Indiana if found, ditto for gums, box hives, and any other bee container without removable frames. This is to prevent AFB from decimating the beekeeping industry as it did in the 1920s and 30s, before antibiotics. Still a good law as far as I'm concerned. Plenty of wild hives to
"play" with, if you have them as "domestic" bees they should be properly maintained in a proper hive.
