(2) Landscape maintenance pest control. (3) Right-of-way pest control. (4) Agricultural pest control. (5) Forest pest control. (6) Aquatic pest control. (7) Regulatory pest control. (8) Seed treatment. (9) Agricultural pest control-animal. (10) Demonstration and research. (11) Health-related pest control. (b) In addition to being certified in one or more of the categories in subdivision (a), an applicant may elect to be trained in the handling, control, and techniques of removal of Africanized honey bees. (c) The director may develop a training program that covers the handling, control, and techniques of removal of Africanized honey bees or may approve a training program developed by the Pest Control Operators of California or any other equivalent training program, subject to the following requirements: (1) A certificate of training shall be presented by the training provider to the applicant upon completion of the approved training program.

(b) The director shall pay by contract entered into pursuant to this section, five-eighths of the funds received from apiary assessments to the counties as reimbursement for costs incurred by the commissioner in the administration and enforcement of this chapter. The payment shall be apportioned to the commissioner in relation to each county's expenditure for the administration and enforcement of the chapter. The director, after consulting with the board, shall establish standards of performance for administration and enforcement. The director shall make the payments to each county only if the commissioner acts in compliance with a contract entered into between the director and the commissioner If any quarantine is established pursuant to this article, no person shall move any bees, comb, hive, or appliance, across the lines established by the quarantine except pursuant to the regulations of the director If an inspector finds any pest or disease which is known to be contagious in any apiary, the inspector may hold the apiary and may require that abatement be performed under his or her direct supervision. The inspector shall give notice that the apiary is held to the owner or bailee and post a copy of the notice in a conspicuous place in the apiary If notice that an apiary is being held has been given pursuant to Section 29112, no person shall move the apiary, or any part of the apiary, or any other bee equipment from the location, unless the person is authorized by an inspector, until the hold order is released Upon request of the owner of any apiary which is held pursuant to an order by an inspector, the inspector shall release the hold order by issuing a permit to move the apiary if the inspector determines that the pest or disease has been abated. The permit shall state on it that the apiary had been under a hold order at the point of origin, was released from the hold order, and the date of release Except as otherwise provided in Section 29121, no person shall import or transport into the state any comb, bees on comb, queen bees, package bees, bee semen, or any used hive or used appliance, unless each separate load, lot, or shipment is accompanied by a valid certificate prescribed by this article, and filed in a form and in the manner as set forth by the director, and unless the certificate is delivered to the commissioner of the county of destination or to the director, if there is

(b) No importation shall be allowed if it would violate any quarantine regulation adopted by the director pursuant to Section Except as provided in Section 29123, the certificate required by Section shall be signed by the State Entomologist, State Apiary Inspector, or comparable officer in charge of apiary inspection for the state of origin and shall certify to all of the following facts: (a) The name and address of the owner or shipper and the place of destination in this state. (b) The number or amount of queen bees, package bees, bee semen, hives, or nuclei which contain bees, the number of used hives either empty or containing comb, and a complete list of any other used beekeeping equipment in the shipment. (c) The county and state of origin. (d) The date on which inspection was last made of the apiary in which the bees, comb, used hives, and appliances originated. (e) That the apiary was found free of all pests denoted as pests by the State of California, using detection procedures and methods approved by the director. (f) If the pest is American foulbrood, the total number of colonies in the apiary at the time of inspection, and the number of colonies found infested. (g) That all American foulbrood colonies of bees found upon inspection were destroyed, removed to a quarantine apiary, or removed to wax salvage, prior to the issuance of the certificates In lieu of the requirements of Section 29122, the certificate required by Section may be a California certificate of inspection issued pursuant to Sections to 29145, inclusive, and showing the comb, bees on comb, or hives or appliances has or had been inspected in California within the 12 months prior to their return to California and at the time of the inspections had been found to have had less than 1 percent American foulbrood disease. Beekeepers or their agents shall carry a copy of the certificate with them and proof of ownership of the apiary and its contents, for production to the border inspectors on demand upon reentry Any shipment of bees on comb, used hives, or used appliances arriving in this state which is not accompanied by, where required by Section 29120, a valid certificate shall be refused entry and returned to the shipper or destroyed, at the option and expense of the owner or person in charge of the shipment The certificates required by Section are valid only during the inspection season in which they were issued, except that a certificate that covers a shipment arriving prior to April 1 from a locality that has severe winters shall be valid if it shows the last inspection of the apiary was made on or after August 15 of the preceding year (a) If any bees, comb, hives, or appliances entering California are found to be diseased at the time of inspection in this state within 30 days after arrival, the inspector may hold the apiary, lot, or shipment. The inspector shall give notice to the owner or bailee, as prescribed in Section 29113, that the apiary, lot, or shipment is held. (b) If any load, lot, or shipment of bees, comb, hives, or appliances, entering California are found at the time of inspection in this state

5 within 30 days after arrival to have more than 2 percent American foulbrood disease, that load, lot, or shipment of bees, comb, hives, or appliances shall be removed from the state and returned to the shipper Any American foulbrood disease or other disease found pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section shall be abated pursuant to Article 14 (commencing with Section 29200) of this chapter After the American foulbrood disease or other disease has been abated, the inspector may release the hold order, if the release can be made without menace or harm from the disease to the bee industry of this state. If the release cannot be so made, after the disease has been abated, the remaining bees, comb, hives, and appliances shall be destroyed or shipped out of this state within 72 hours after the expiration of the abatement notice, at the option and expense of the owner or bailee No person shall maintain or operate a diseased colony of bees, except pursuant to Section No person shall conceal or attempt to conceal the fact that disease exists within an apiary No person shall sell any diseased bees, comb, hive, appliance, or colony No person shall abandon any diseased apiary No person shall expose to bees any comb or honey from a diseased colony of bees, except pursuant to Section No person shall extract or render any honey, pollen, or wax from comb except in a building or enclosure which is so constructed as to prevent access by bees No person shall possess any comb which is not occupied by a live bee colony unless the comb is tightly enclosed to prevent access to the comb by bees Any hive or appliance which contains any comb that is not occupied by a live bee colony and that is accessible to bees constitutes a public nuisance. The hive or appliance shall be subject to abatement in the same manner as is provided in Article 14 (commencing with Section 29200) of this chapter for abatement of disease No person shall make honey available to bees by means of open air feeding All beekeepers shall provide movable frames in the brood area of all hives which they use to contain bees, and shall make provisions so the bees in the hives shall construct combs in the frames in such a way that the combs may be removed from the hives for inspection without damaging other combs in the hives The inspector shall order the owner or person in charge of any bees which are kept in a box or other unmovable or stationary comb hive to transfer the bees to a movable frame hive within a reasonable time, to be specified in the order. In default of transfer by the owner or person in charge of the bees, the inspector may destroy in a summary manner the hive and its contents No person shall place, in any combless package of bees or queen bees offered for sale or shipment, any food which contains honey The director may establish a system for certifying colony strength for bees used in the pollination of agricultural crops The colony strength of a bee colony shall be certified after inspection on the basis of the number of active frames of bees or the square inches of brood per colony, or both, using a sampling system, approved by the director The inspection and certification of colony strength of bees may be made by department employees, the commissioner or persons authorized by the commissioner, or persons appointed by the director Inspection and certification shall be made at the request of the beekeeper or agricultural producer involved. The party requesting the inspection and certification shall pay for the service. To the greatest extent possible, the inspector shall endeavor to give the beekeeper advance notice of the scheduled date of the inspection.

6 The director may by regulation establish reasonable fees to cover the cost of inspection and certification performed by department employees and persons appointed by the director, other than the agricultural commissioner The board of supervisors of the county may establish reasonable fees to cover the cost of inspection and certification performed by the commissioner The Legislature finds that in order to ensure the vitality of the apiary industry, to protect the welfare of the people of the State of California, as well as agricultural crops dependent upon bees for pollination, a pest inspection program should be an integral part of the regulatory scheme contained in this division. The Legislature further finds that without a continuing regular inspection program, as further specified in this article, the programs and requirements of law set forth in this division will be impaired (a) The director, or the commissioner, or any inspector acting under their direction, may enter if he or she determines it to be necessary, any location where an apiary is maintained, and make an inspection of the apiary, including ancillary buildings. The inspector may give prior notice of the inspection where the notice would not interfere with the purpose of the inspection. The right of inspection shall occur at reasonable times, and shall not include any dwelling. If the inspector desires entry to any dwelling because he or she suspects maintenance problems regarding a colony, hive, comb, or appliance therein, the inspector, upon request, shall obtain a warrant pursuant to the provisions of Section of the Civil Code and comply with the provisions therein. No person shall interfere with the entry of an inspector in the official course of his or her duty. The inspector shall report the result of the inspection to the beekeeper, where feasible, within five days of the inspection. (b) If the inspector finds American foulbrood disease has infected more than two hives of 99 colonies or less, or 2 percent or more of colonies of 100 or more, he or she shall make a complete inspection of all the hives in the apiary and the owner of the hives in the apiary shall pay the cost of the complete inspection. If the inspector finds American foulbrood disease has infested less than 2 percent of colonies of 100 or more as the result of an inspection made after the disease was brought to the inspector's attention in writing, the commissioner may assess the costs of the inspection on the person who brought the disease to the inspector's attention If, in the course of an inspection authorized by Section 29201, the inspector finds or has reason to suspect that there are pests in the apiary, the inspector shall plainly mark the hives or any part thereof which contain evidence of pest infestation. The inspector may place a band with a seal around a diseased hive If infestation is found in an apiary, the inspector shall notify the owner or person in charge or possession of the apiary in writing. The notice shall state the nature of the pest infestation found and the manner in which the inspector has marked the hives or any part thereof which contain evidence of the infestation and shall order the abatement of the infestation within a specified time. No person after receiving notice shall refuse or neglect to abate the infestation within the time specified in the notice or order. If the inspector, in his or her judgment, believes summary abatement is necessary, the inspector may do so, or require that abatement be performed under his or her direct supervision. The inspector may also issue a hold order against the apiary, giving notice that the apiary is held to the owner or bailee and posting a copy of the hold order in a conspicuous place in the apiary. No person, who has been given notice of a hold order, shall move the apiary or any part of the apiary or any other bee equipment from the location unless authorized by the inspector, until the hold order is released Every infested apiary is a public nuisance. The owner or person

7 in charge or possession of any apiary, upon finding an infestation to be present, or upon receiving notice an infestation exists in the apiary, shall abate the infestation without undue delay, pursuant to the requirements of law The notice may be served upon the person that has possession or that owns the infested apiary, personally or by certified mail to his or her last known address. If the owner or person in charge or possession of any apiary is not known, the notice shall be served by posting it in a conspicuous place in the apiary If the infestation found in an apiary is American foulbrood, the time specified in the notice shall not be less than 24 hours nor more than 48 hours from the time the notice is served, except that the inspector may extend the time limit if necessary to prevent hardship and it can be done without undue danger of spreading the disease If American foulbrood is found in an apiary, the abatement shall be by killing the bees in the infested colonies and disposing of the hives and their contents, together with any other infested comb, hives, and associated appliances which are found in the apiary, in one of the following ways: (a) By delivery to a licensed wax salvage plant pursuant to this chapter. (b) By burning in a manner as set forth in Section 29208, the contents of the diseased colonies, including the bees, comb, and associated frames, together with any other diseased combs, and associated frames, which are found in the apiary in one of the following ways and disinfecting by scorching the hive bodies, covers, bottom boards, supers, and appliances associated with them: (1) Burning in a pit and burying the ashes not less than two feet below the surface of the ground. (2) Burning in an incinerator approved by the director. This section does not prevent federal and state research agencies from securing, transporting, and maintaining infested bees, comb, hives, appliances, or colonies pursuant to Section (a) If abatement is by burning, the person abating shall act in accordance with applicable air pollution control district or air quality maintenance district regulations and state and local fire control laws. If the regulations or laws prohibit burning immediately, the diseased colonies shall be sealed and placed in an enclosed structure and thereafter burned on the first date allowed by the regulation or law. All the activities shall be reported to the inspector prior to burning, who may require that burning occur only under his or her supervision. (b) The inspector's supervision shall be in addition to, but not in conflict with, the applicable air pollution control district or air quality management district regulations and fire control laws. Burning without the knowledge of the inspector is a violation of this section. (c) If abatement is by delivery to a licensed wax salvage plant, the person abating shall provide the inspector with information as to the date and location of delivery. (d) If the inspector determines that abatement by burning is appropriate, the inspector's costs for supervising the burning shall be borne by the beekeeper with the diseased hives If the owner or person in charge or possession of an apiary in which an infestation is found to exist cannot be located after diligent search by the inspector, or if notice has been served pursuant to this article and the owner or person in charge or possession of the apiary refuses or neglects to abate the infestation within the time which is specified in the notice, the inspector shall abate the infestation within 72 hours after expiration of the time which is specified in the notice. The cost of abatement shall be paid by the owner of the apiary If an abatement notice as required by this article has been served upon the owner or bailee of an apiary, the owner or bailee, before the expiration of the time specified in the notice, may appeal from the

8 inspector's field determination of the infestation named in the notice by sending a written appeal to the director with a specimen of the infested material chosen and sealed for transportation jointly by the owner or bailee and the inspector, which is accompanied by a statement signed by the owner or bailee and the inspector, attesting to the fact that such specimen was obtained from the portion of the apiary described in the abatement notice In those instances when the inspector has sealed the infested hive after making a field determination, if a beekeeper appeals the inspector's field determination, the owner or bailee of the apiary and the inspector shall jointly break the seal and take the sample for appeal. If the band is broken in the absence of the inspector, no appeal shall be valid and the infestation shall be abated as described in the abatement notice The specimen shall be subjected to a laboratory diagnosis by the director, or at his or her direction. The written determination which sets forth the findings of the diagnosis is final proof of the nature of the infestation which exists in the apiary The disease which is named by the director in a written response to the appeal may be abated pursuant to this chapter. Pending the determination of the director, the time which is specified in the abatement notice shall be extended by the number of hours between the forwarding of the representative specimen and the receipt of the written determination from the director by the inspector, and the service of a copy of the written determination upon the owner or bailee that made the written appeal. If the owner or bailee cannot be found after due diligence, the extended time shall expire when a copy of the director's determination is served by posting it in the apiary The secretary, in cooperation with the Regents of the University of California, may approve programs statewide to train, on a voluntary basis, beekeepers in the maintenance of colonies free of Africanized honey bees (a) Any hive or comparable apparatus that is not occupied by a live bee colony, and that is accessible to bees, is a public nuisance. The hive or apparatus shall be subject to abatement in the manner provided for in Article 14 (commencing with Section 29200). (b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), if the commissioner determines that any bees present in an abandoned hive or comparable apparatus are not aggressive and harbor no diseases, the abandoned hive or comparable apparatus shall not be deemed a public nuisance. In those cases, the commissioner may request that any beekeeper remove the hive or comparable apparatus from the premises. Any beekeeper who complies with the commissioner's request may take permanent possession of the abandoned hive or apparatus (a) The Legislature finds and declares all of the following: (1) The California citrus industry is in the process of adapting to a more competitive marketplace and to consumer tastes that continue to change. In the past five years, an estimated 40,000 acres of citrus have been removed from production and replaced with new varieties of citrus, a majority of which is mandarin fruit commonly called Clementines or W. Murcotts, which are intended to be seedless. (2) According to the 2005 California Citrus Acreage Report, these varieties have increased substantially. In 2004, more than 10,000 acres of these varieties were bearing fruit. Another 2,000 acres began bearing fruit in The same report states that an additional 12,000 acres of these varieties have been planted but have yet to bear fruit. This production will come into maturity within the next three years, and more is being planted. (3) Due to the production of other agricultural products in proximity to new seedless varieties of citrus, the production of these varieties may be in jeopardy. According to a University of California at Riverside study published in June of 2005, seedless mandarins command three to four times as much revenue as seeded mandarins. Other citrus-producing nations

9 around the world have adopted citrus protection areas to limit damage created by cross-pollination. (4) Honeybees are an essential component of agriculture as they pollinate approximately $6 billion worth of crops in California. Historically, honeybee colonies are placed in the citrus belt of Kern, Tulare, Fresno, and Madera Counties to support existing agricultural practices, including the pollination of several commodities and the production of honey. Colony Collapse Disorder has reduced the nation's bee population by 25 percent in the past three years, which in turn has created pressure on other agricultural sectors that rely on a healthy bee population for pollination of their crops. (b) Any regulation or best management practice adopted pursuant to this chapter shall not affect the actual pollination process of other commodities during their blooming cycle, nor shall it be implemented when almonds, avocados, peaches, plums, nectarines, seed crops, or other commodities require pollination. (c) Any regulation or best management practice adopted pursuant to this chapter shall not affect the ability of property owners located within the area impacted by the regulation or best management practice to farm any commercial crop, including, but not limited to, honey, citrus, and other commodities recognized by the Department of Food and Agriculture (a) Not later than 15 days after enactment of this chapter, the secretary shall designate a Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group from recommendations received by interested stakeholders. The Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group shall be established pursuant to the procedures set forth in subdivision (b) of Section 588. For purposes of this chapter, "grower," as used in subdivision (b) of Section 588, includes a beekeeper. (b) The Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group shall meet on a regular and consistent basis in an effort to develop best management practices that address the coexistence issues related to production of seedless mandarin varieties located in Fresno, Kern, Madera, and Tulare Counties, while providing for the reasonable access to citrus for the California bee industry The secretary shall give the Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group reasonable time to develop best management practices described in Section (a) If the Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group reaches consensus of best management practices prior to June 1, 2008, the secretary may adopt regulations if, in the secretary's judgment, this action is necessary to implement and enforce the best management practices. (b) If the Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group fails to reach consensus on best management practices by June 1, 2008, the secretary shall adopt regulations no later than February 1, Regulations adopted pursuant to this section shall be limited to Fresno, Kern, Madera, and Tulare Counties, address the coexistence issues related to production of seedless mandarin varieties, and allow seedless mandarin producers to meet retail standards for seedless fruit, while providing reasonable access to citrus for the California bee industry. The regulations adopted may include the establishment of fees, not to exceed the cost of the program, to be paid by seedless mandarin growers, subject to this chapter. Proposed Section(s) pdf Voluntary Registration of Seedless Mandarin Acreage Section establishes the registration process and responsibilities of the registrant for the voluntary registration of seedless mandarin acreage planted within the protection area (the area within two miles of any registered seedless mandarin acreage in Madera, Fresno, Tulare or Kern county) with the commissioner of the county in which the acreage is located. An owner may register annually, and registration shall include

10 acreage(s) by variety, total number of acres by variety and number of trees by variety. Owners shall register between January 1st and January 31st, thereafter and pay an annual registration fee of ($10.00) to the commissioner for registration in the county. The proposed Section addresses points agreed upon by the Working Group: the establishment of a registration process for seedless mandarin growers and apiary registration. Under existing law beekeeper s are required to register their apiary(ies) Voluntary Release of Confidential Information by Beekeepers Section establishes the process for the voluntary release of confidential information by beekeeper s. Beekeepers may agree to a limited waiver of the confidentiality of information submitted to comply with apiary registration requirements set forth in Division 13, Chapter 1, Article 4 and Division 13, Chapter 1, Article 5 of the Food and Agricultural Code. The waiver shall limit the release of confidential apiary registration information to registered owners of seedless mandarin acreage within the county where the apiary has been registered. A commissioner shall only release information subject to the waiver upon request as follows: during each calendar year for a period commencing on March 1st and concluding on May 31st; and to a owner who has registered seedless mandarin acreage within two miles of the registered apiary or apiaries. The proposed Section is in keeping with the intent of the Working Group s consensus to establish a program by county agricultural commissioners to retain the records of apiaries and provide access to registration information of apiaries in the area to seedless mandarin growers Dispute Resolution Section establishes the dispute resolution process for the owner of registered seedless mandarin acreage, beekeeper s of registered apiaries and commissioner of the county in which the acreage and the apiary are located. The owner of registered seedless mandarin acreage may request that a registered beekeeper move an apiary to an alternative location provided by the owner, if the apiary is located within two miles of the acreage. An owner may request that multiple apiaries be moved if they have been registered by the same beekeeper. Section further establishes a designated timeframe for beekeepers of registered apiaries. Beekeepers shall be available by telephone or other form of electronic verbal communication between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday from March 1st through May 31st to receive requests from a registered seedless mandarin grower to move an apiary. If agreement upon a new location of an apiary cannot be reached between the owner and the beekeeper, either may request, in writing that the commissioner of the county in which the acreage and the apiary is located provide an advisory opinion as to whether the beekeeper should move the apiary to the alternative location. If the acreage and the apiary are located in different counties, the request may be directed to either the commissioner in the county in which the acreage is located or the commissioner in the county where the apiary is located. The party making the request shall also provide the commissioner with a summary of any attempts to resolve the dispute through negotiation. The agricultural commissioner may make a recommendation of one of the following: not move the apiary(ies); move the apiary(ies), or some of the beehives, to a new location proposed by the agricultural commissioner. The participating seedless mandarin grower is required to pay for the costs of the program, as required by Section of the Food and Agricultural Code. Recognizing that parties may not reach agreement when a seedless mandarin grower offers an alternative location, the Department is proposing that the parties may ask a third party to intervene. This step should encourage a potential resolution among the interested parties. The agricultural commissioner, acting as the third party, has the best knowledge of the county and the growing needs of area producers.

11 Agora Hills Alhambra Anaheim Azusa Baldwin Park Brea Carlsbad Currently, commissioners administer the registration of apiaries and other laws in the county. Therefore, the Department is proposing that the county agricultural commissioner be the third party to make a recommendation to resolve a dispute regarding the coexistence of the placement of apiary(ies) in proximity to seedless mandarin groves KEEPING BEE HIVES; NUMBER. It shall be unlawful for any person to keep or maintain more than three hives, swarms or stands of bees within the city limits. ('86 Code, ) (Ord. 1611, passed - - ) Penalty, see KEEPING BEE HIVES; DISTANCE FROM RESIDENCE. It shall be unlawful for any person to keep or maintain one or more hives, swarms or stands of bees within a distance of 100 feet from any residence or dwelling house within the city.

A certificate by the city to the effect that any property has been released from such lien or that such lien has been subordinated to other liens and encumbrances shall be conclusive evidence that the property has been released or that the lien has been subordinated as provided in such certificate.
