when you receive your ticket, it will have a stautory citation and language defining your violation. Please post this language. you may have factual defneses(it doesn't define nuisance as it applies to bees), statutory defenses(necessity), agricultural exceptions(many places forget these statutes are still valid even though suburbia has come to town), vagueness, overbroad, failure to define properly etc. Keeps us posted.
I would also ask for a bee lign-up. They wont be able to identify your bees from a wasp! ;)
