    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.

    Some counties or other jurisdictions, here in Arizona, have zoning ordinances that affect beekeeping. There are no state-wide beekeeping regulations, or programs of inspection, etc. This means that beekeeping is virtually unregulated in the state, and not that we cannot export queens or bees from Arizona, just that many other states prohibit the importation of uninspected/uncertified bees and queens, into their jurisdictions.

    I recently heard that some States are requiring apiaries to be registered. And then if someone is going to spray something which might kill bees then beekeepers are notified and have 24 hours to get their hives moved. And if they don't and hives are killed then the sprayer is not liable for damages. Has anyone else hear anything like this?

    I was concerned about bee keeping laws in Mississippi, so I emailed the state.

    Response:
    Dear Sir,

    No. There are regulations that govern the labeling of honey, the sanitary requirements for selling honey, and certification is required to sell bees or queens to other beekeepers. You do not have to register your hives with the State.

    Hello,
    Regarding NC laws, How far do my beehives need to be from my neighbors?
    How many hives can I have on my property? I now have 2. In June I'll have 5.
    Is this Okay? I am in Onslow county, Midway Park outside of the Marine base on 4 acres.

    Thank you.

    You need to look at your local ordinances. I know of no State regulations about this. Don't know if I would ask too many questions though, sometimes it is easier to beg forgiveness than to seek permission.
