IS IT LEGAL TO RAISE BEES WITHIN NEW BRAUNFELS CITY LIMITS?
The domestic raising of honey bees within the city limits is not expressly prohibited under local ordinances Current animal control ordinances provide regulations for the care and keeping of domestic animals, mcluding livestock within the city limits, in addition to establishing custody and housing requirements for the safe and humane treatment of animals.
However, the commercial raising of bees is subiect to regulation under the Texas Agriculture Code, under Title 6, Production, Processing and Sale of Animal Products, Subtitle A, Bees and Non Livestock Animal Industry, Chapter 131,
Bees and Honey.
Individuals wishing to learn more on this topic should contact the Texas Apiary Inspection Service (TAIS) in College Station at (979) 845-9714 The TAIS regulates honey bees in our state in order to maintain a healthy and viable population of honey bees to benefit pollination needs, honey production and Texas Agriculture as a whole
