Sounds good to me so far. When was his hives last inspected?
I spoke to the inspector for the area that the seller is in (not my inpsectors area). He has not inspected them this year.
He said that in the past his bees were fine and he did not have any reason to raise any red flags.
My inspector is so very nice and helpful. I met him at the state fair in Feb and talked to him for a while. I called him earlier this week and talked to him about keeping bees in my area. He gave me his cell phone number and said to call anytime I have any questions as "that is what I am here for". Today he told me that he would be out for a week and would not be able to inspect and register them until August but to call him in 2 weeks just because he is interested to know if I bought them. He also gave me some similar tips that yall have.
It is real nice to have meet someone like this. He was the same way when I spoke to him at the fair.
Oh by the way, yall have been real nice and helpful too. THANKS!!!!
