Clear Lake

Are bees allowed?  Yes. There are no restrictions. (No digital citation as there is no code regarding honey bees.)

If a nuisance was called: There is no code on which to found a nuisance complaint.

Additional notes: Staff stated that “It would be hard to prove that a beekeeper’s honey bees are causing an issue.”

Staff acknowledges that beekeepers exist in town; mosquito spray is done 11 pm. -12 a.m. when bees are roosting.
