or to take measures to eradicate bee diseases or disorders.
The Board shall have authority to either allow, require, or forbid use of drugs in
the control of bee diseases or disorders, and may define as infested or infected symptomless
carriers of a disease or disorder, declare bees that have been treated with disease-masking
drugs to be infested or infected, and consider bees or articles which have been exposed
to a disease or disorder to be infected or infested.
The Board may also adopt regulations governing beeswax salvage operations and honey
house sanitation for disease prevention.
