In 2015 the Salisbury Mayor and City Council approved an ordinance allowing for citizens to keep bees in their backyards. This is an exciting time to make sure pollinators are protected and growing in numbers. Before purchasing bees you must register with the State Department of Agriculture. Depending on lot size, households can have from three to five bee hives. Owning bees is not a simple task. Make sure to complete ample research.
