Sweet Bee Apiary is now registered with the Washington State Department of Agriculture!

It's illegal in Washington State and the rest of the nation to keep bees in any type of hive that doesn't have removable frames.  The reasoning behind this is that a fixed comb hive, like the old style of bee skep, makes it too difficult to examine the colony for diseases, etc.

I looking into building a top bar hive this summer and this kind of hive will qualify.
