Jim Davis has agreed to do inspections on a limited basis for Geauga county. He is also the inspector for Lake County. If you suspect you have American FoulBrood then by all means have Jim come over to look at your hives. Also, if you are going to sell hives, bees or queens, they have to be inspected before you can sell them. If you have any other problems with bees please call a friend or member of the bee club to try to help resolve the problem.
