Are bees allowed? Yes, as there is no regulation to exclude them.

If a nuisance was called: Should a bee hive become neglectful, it would be considered a public nuisance. Honey bees do not fit under Animal control per definition of Animal.

Additional notes: There has been one tense incident of neglectful beekeeping that was brought under control by residents.
