Hi all, newbee question here. I'm been thinking of getting some bees but have a problem. My wife doesn't want me putting a hive in our backyard (1/2 acre). Something about mixing our kids with bees would be dangerous. My father said I could put them at his house which is an hour away on 22 acres. My question is how often do should I visit the hive to see how things are? I was thinking every 2 or 3 weeks. My father kept bees for about 10yrs and about 15yrs ago they all died because of mites. So he does have some experience but did say they would be my responsibility (although he wants me to pick him up a hive too). Advice?
