Re: Got inspected on Friday
Apiary Inspectors don't have the authority to regulate treatments. Not in most States that I am aware of anyway. Apiary Inspectors can enforce the destruction of AFB, a disease, and some pests, for example if tropelalacs clarea was detected than under the authority of the Commissioner of Agriculture hives could be destroyed. But when it comes to using something to kill varroa mites Apiary Inspectors don't have the authority to tell you that you can't use whatever you are using.
If something shows up in the honey you produce, that's another thing and another Division of the Department of Agriculture. Leastwise that's how I understand it.
Just because something is new to you, doesn't mean it is new, or revolutionary. Mark Berninghausen
