Minnesotans need bee licence
I never realised that Minnesota beekeepers had to pay an annual beekeeper fee of $10. There are 458 registered beekeepers and 120739 bee colonies. The licence applies to all beekeepers including hobbyists and anyone who owns, leases, or possesses colonies of bees.


The information is used by state apiary inspectors to locate colonies for pest and disease inspections and to help aerial applicators locate and avoid colonies when spraying pesticides.

As part of the registry process, apiary inspectors provide free inspections of registered bee colonies for pests and diseases and help with treatment recommendations.
 The fee is per beekeeper rather than per colony, so the income generated seems very small. And in Minnesota people need licences for all manner of agricultural activities.
