§

3025. Second inspection of diseased colonies; destruction

The secretary or

his or her inspectors shall inspect all diseased apiaries a second time no less

than 10 days after the first inspection. If the existence of disease within the

apiary has been confirmed by a federal laboratory, the inspector may destroy

any colonies of bees if he or she finds them not cured of such disease, or not

treated or handled according to his or her instructions, together with honey

combs, hives or other equipment, without recompense to the owner thereof. This

section shall not preclude an inspector from destroying diseased colonies at

any time with the consent of the owner, or his or her agent. (Added 1983, No.

83, § 1; amended 2003, No. 42, § 2, eff. May 27, 2003.)
