My property is located in an area where it is about 50% wooded and 50% pasture land. About 1.5 miles one way I have a neighbor that has 2 hives. The other direction about 2 mioles there are 15 hives scattered about. My property is mostly a cutover so there will quite a bit of blackberry there. My question is... How many hives can I place on my property before they start being less productive? Do bees work cudzoo? If so, I have about 2 acres of that there.
