Does Idaho require a permit to keep bees?   How about your state?

I'm pretty sure Virginia doesn't.  Every beekeeper i know doesn't have anything like that.  Of course i could be wrong.

Ohio just requires that you register them and the location yearly.

You only need to register your hives in Idaho if you have 10 or more.  Otherwise, you are exempt as a hobbiest.

South carolina requires no permits unless you are transporting bees across state lines.

Illinois requires that you register your apiary, if you have only one hive or over a thousand! You are also required to have your registration numers on each hive....and to re-register your apiary every November. You must also allow a state inspector to open and check all or any hives at any time. Another requirement is that you must provide GPS locations of all hives.

Have to register in PA once every 2 years. If you expand, you have to let them know, but i dont think the fee goes up. They just want to know who's keeping bees, how many hives and where.

Too much government....way Way WAY too much government.  I'm sure that their is not end to all of the good reasons why someone with a hive has to tell the state that they have it and where it is but...Way too much government.

Washington State:  Any number of hives above zero have to be registered.  1-5 hives is $5.00 total for the year.  It's a sliding scale, 1,001 or more hives is $300 per year.  Expensive fine if you don't register.  You also have to indicate if you'll be using them for commercial pollination, but no extra fees for that.

Certain cities have stricter requirements as to how many hives you can have, where they can be placed, etc.  I've not yet stumbled upon county level requirements.

-T
(IMHO, this is primarily a small revenue generator/department justifier.  You get a newsletter out of it.  GPS Locations of all hives?  You gotta be kidding me.  I'd give them GPS coordinates, all righty.)

In Tennessee you are to register any hives and tell where they are located, they also ask if you would like to rent bees for pollination, I think they put your name on a contact list.

They're the fictional cartoon characters on a box of honeycomb cereal.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.  Besides, no one saw anything and you can't prove it anyway.

In New Mexico:

You don't have to register unless you have apiaries of 15 or more hives north of Interstate 40 or 25 or more hives south of Interstate 40.  How's that for arbitrary?

You do in Florida. 1-5 hives is $10/year, renewable on the anniverary of your registration. But you also get the free resources of the state inspector, who is very knowlegeable and helpful.

Think of it as club dues.

Unfortunatly, all my bees perished in that unfortunate boating accident when I was attempting to transport them, along with all my firearms accross the lake.

I only keep empty boxes for storing funny looking wooden things.  I can't be held responsible when wild insects move in and take over.  When they start registering fire ant mounds, I'll consider it.

I always wondered if the "state guy" did not spread disease from hive to hive, he is in a bunch of different apearies, and probably does not sanitize his equipment between visits. We had foul brood running through hives here about 25 years ago and I always wondered that.

 North Carolina only if you sell bees is it required, but any apiary can be. The advantage of having it registered is that by state law you can keep  people from spraying insecticides from a plane (crop dusting)with within a couple miles of the apiary. You are also required, if registered, to allow inspectors on your property at any time. Now this is out of a attorney's mouth, so take it for what its worth. We had a lawyer speak at our bee meeting a couple of months ago. He was actually really very informative and I appreciate him doing it.

Can't really think of any good reasons for government at all.
Way Way too much of it.
