    Basically, you have to register. The law does not state that you must submit to inspections, but that you can request them. Probably a good idea if you're selling honey or bees.

    You have to put an ID tag on your hives. If the state finds hives without tags they can confiscate and destroy them.

    Your name and contact info will be published on a publicly available list of licence holders.

    You can download the full text of the relevant laws here. https://www.nd.gov/ndda/program/apia...ram-honey-bees

    The above info is an excerpt.
