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

If a nuisance was called: A claim could be made to the state, but not the city as there is no code to violate.

Additional notes: Livestock definition does not include honey bees.
