Portland actually encourage bee disease. They consider bees as stinting insects causing anaphylactic shock. Their permit requirement of 100% written permission from all residences within 150' is ignored by almost all bee heepers in Portland. The problem is that should a new beekeeper decide to give up they let their hive go into disrepair. That hive will become diseased. If a hive is in a 2 mile radius a healthy hive it will rob the honey and bring the declining hives disease to the healthy colony.
