    Georgia already listed (thanks Scottsman) but wanted to add that most states also have a statute that supports bee keepers of any size by suspending pesticide spraying and other pest control applications if you let them know you have bees. I have a neat road sign I put up under an existing road sign as well as visiting my local mosquito war department and they were more than willing to accommodate me. They have ceased spraying down my road until they get 1/4 mile away or better.

    Tried to load a couple pics but kept getting 404 error code. I painted it Caterpillar yellow with black lettering and graphics. I put my location and hive name (Heretic Hive) on it. No complaints from the road department

    Anything for Michigan?

    Either I'm not very diligent in looking or do they now let the Michigan beekeepers 'fly by the seat of their pants?' On another thread I started concerning AFB one poster mentioned, I believe in FL, that a bee inspector told him that he hadn't seen AFB for many years. So with the tightening of the states' financial belts over the last few decades has many states just dropped their bee registration and inspection programs?

    Really just peeking around the corner, not seeking anymore state or municipal taxation or registration fees, but don't want to get 'hung up' with a penalty for not reporting such. Remembering the old saying that 'ignorance of the law doesn't give one a pass-go free card if caught.'

    Massachusetts:
    https://malegislature.gov/Laws/Gener...r128/Section32

    Can click forward from there, the bee laws are sections 32-36B.

    Interesting side note, Section 33 seems to prohibit some of the newer hive designs for use in Massachusetts, you need movable frames - which to me means Langstroth only (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    Arizona appears to have very limited beekeeping regulations. One of them is here:
    http://www.azda.gov/Docs/Beeslandownerpermission.pdf

    I suggest contacting the Arizona Ag Dept as per that page to ask if there are other current beekeeping regulations.

    In some of my past conversations with Dee Lusby, she explained to me how her and Ed fought the state to deregulate beekeeping. I'm thinking that is why you can't find much in AZ as well as associations. Kind of the wild west there.

    Sorry, you are wrong. Top bar and Warre hives have removable frames.

    Well, Mary, technically Warres and TBHs don't have removable FRAMES, they have removable COMBS.

    The bottom line is, no matter the wording of Law, whether brood combs are inspectable for diseases, such as AFB and EFB.

    Well, a TBH has removable bars which are frames without sides or bottom.

    At any rate, I know they (TBHs) are just fine in Massachusetts because Ken W. a Mass. State Bee Inspector aka the Bee Whisperer was just at my house on Monday and checked out my one Lang and 2 TBH's - he never batted an eye at the TBH's. He said everything was under control in the mite/SHB department, but the Lang is honey bound and I need to re-arrange a few frames.

    And darned if he didn't wear only a hat and veil - no jacket and no gloves. He pulled my Lang apart and the bees just said, "Fine, Kenny Boy, do what you want, we're ok with all of it." And that was my borderline-mean, sometimes-psycho hive, it was almost dusk and had been cloudy all day, the next door neighbor was running a buzz saw the whole time. Hence my calling him The Bee Whisperer.

    So that's a little anecdote about the Massachusetts state bee inspector. I should have asked him how often he gets stung but I was so awe-struck watching him in action, it never occurred to me.

    I bet his answer would have been regularly. Gloves are impossible to clean and expensive to replace every time an Apiary Inspector finds AFB, so sans gloves is the norm.

    Did he inspect every bee or only some? heh heh
