    Default Rumor? California will require migratory beekeepers to use Cordovan

    There is a rumor going around that California will require beekeepers coming in to have Cordovan bees. Is there any truth or just a scare?

    Just bees coming from Florida!

    Come on, there's no way this could be enforced even if it wasn't rumor.

    Not much about this this rumor even makes sense. There are inspectors at the bug station that can't even ID a fire ant and they would be asked to determine subtle differences in strains of bees within a particular race like Italians? "Turn your rig around buddy, I just found me a 3 banded Italian". Riiiight.

    >>they come from the "kind and gentle society"<<
    Yes they are a kind and gentle bee. Pretty, too. But if I tried to run all cordovans, I'd have to have the Mann Lake tanker truck on speed dial

    AM, you misread the statement from the entry border station, they only require nutra Bee fed hives into the state.
