Re: Got inspected on Friday
Where I am, we do see various infractions when we are inspecting hives for AFB.
But our job is to find AFB. If we get heavy handed about other matters, people might try to dodge us, not register sites, etc, and that is counter productive to our job of finding AFB.
Other tack on it though, has anyone actually ever been prosecuted for treating their hive with oxalic? No? Perhaps most government employees turn a blind eye to this, while awaiting a law change to legalise this useful form of mite treatment.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
