Bee Inspector Funding
« on: June 10, 2012, 09:36:51 PM »
What are the top three reasons a county should continue to fund it's bee inspector (note--I am not referring to my county).

(Sorry for all the posts but I've been away for awhile and saved up!)

We have state funded inspectors. Never heard of a county bee inspector.

to be honest, i can't think of any good reason for a state bee inspector.  maybe if it had some commercial implications or you were having a commercial operation inspected...but that's why we have the FDA right?

there's no state corn inspector because i grow corn in my back yard.  no state chicken inspector because i keep a few hens.....
.....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.....

No state that I know of will allow the import of bees into it without a health certificate. There may be a few, but i don't know of any. The state bee inspector is the one that issues them. Here, the inspector is only a convenience for the hobbyist if he isn't moving them interstate. He only comes when requested, makes no demands, only suggestions, and educates. There is no charge.

 For commercials, he inspects and issues certificates.
