"Think of it as club dues."

It is only club dues if I voluntarily join the club.  I have no desire to join the states "club"

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

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.

Kathyp,

With your Patrick Henry quote, I knew that I would like you, and you just confirmed it.

 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.

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.
Can't really think of any good reasons for government at all.
Way Way too much of it.
"Power, especially overgrown power, whets the ambition and sets all the wits to work to enlarge it. Therefore, encroachments on peoples liberties are not generally made all at once, but so gradually as hardly to be perceived by the less watchful; and all plastered over, it may be, with such plausible pretenses, that before they are aware of the snare, they are taken and can not disentangle themselves."

Samuel Webster
Massachusetts 1777
