    That's worth my little tax IMO. How many other taxes do you pay that you actually know what they are paying for with the money?
    For bees and bee diseases you can send your samples directly to the USDA bee lab in Beltsville MD. The testing is free. Relatively fast turnaround, too.
    Another Evil Beekeeping Truth: treatment-free beekeeping makes great sense so long as they're not your bees.

    Brad Bee:

    You made Wes drive all the way from Huntsville to collect your registration fee? Remember, 60 cents of that was a late payment penalty.

    Wes is a nice guy who is very helpful. The State is mainly there to stop foulbrood. What ever you do, don't bring comb into the state. They are reviving Big Yellow Mama since the anti death penalty folks made the chemicals so hard to get.<GG>

    Kansas the "Free State". No registration or fees of any kind. We don't even have a state inspector. Ironic since the official state insect in none other that the honey bee!

    Toe, yes Wes is a nice guy. He's young and is having to learn on the job but he seems interested in his job which is a big plus.

    Regarding him driving over.... When I talked to the lady in Montgomery she said she would mail me the form, but Wes was too quick on the draw. He got here before the form arrived. We sat and talked for 30 minutes.
    The more I learn about bees, the less I know.

    When Wes did his inspection of my hives last year, it was as much an info/training session as an inspection. He showed me a lot of tips to make inspections easier. Nice person to say the least.

    My $10 ($5 per yard) gets me an hour or two with our 92 yr old inspector. Worth it at twice the price.

    It cost me $40 to have the bees inspected and $25 to get my queen certificate which allows me to be able to sell queens. But, if I have any question I can pickup the phone and call our inspector and get any answer. Every Florida bee inspector I have met is very knowledgeable and friendly. Our building inspectors is a whole different ball of wax. LOL

    They inspect all the 5 gallon buckets of water on rooftops to make sure they are topped off before hurricane season hits

    My opinions are based on whatever OD Frank says because he thinks he knows everything!

    The thing that made me laugh hardest was the high probability that Rader would post a link to the bucket of water fiasco lol

    They pay an inspector to do that? In NY they have learned that if you drill a hole in the top they are self filling. No inspection required.

    In Tennessee, if we want a bucket full of water, we simply remove the lid from the bucket and leave it outside. Why drill a hole in the lid?
