4.12.102 APIARY, LOCATED BY PERMISSION
(1) Persons registering a new location for the first time must have the approval signature of the landowner or manager indicating that the beekeeper has obtained the permission to place an apiary on the landowner′s property. When a registered site is transferred to another beekeeper, landowner or manager signature must be obtained and filed with the department.
(2) Upon notice from a landowner or land manager that a beekeeper is no longer allowed access to their property or allowed to maintain bees on the property, the department will cancel the registration and notify the beekeeper.
(3) Once a site registration has been cancelled, any placement of new bees on the site must first be registered with the department. A new site registration will only be granted if the site registration does not conflict with an existing registered site within a three mile radius.
