Re: Is it illegal to kill honeybees?
It's a common perception; when doing removals people often say they've heard it's illegal, they're protected, etc. I have never been able to find any legislation to that effect; the only organizations that would have jurisdiction over non-managed critters is Division of Wildlife or whatever it's called in your state and they don't take a position. So "no" is the answer as far as I can tell. Closest thing would be rules about pesticide application by anyone other than a property owner without a pest-app license, but if you're using soapy water for example no rules.
