Re: Residential Beekeeping
I live in a development subdivision and have two hives. I have never had any complaints. When they walk by they ask a lot of questions which allows me to educate them that honeybees are harmless if left alone. Funny thing is they tell me as long as they stay at my house that's good. I just look at them funny and laugh. I guess they think they can only fly in my yard. They say this jokingly. However I live in a pretty laid back community.
Most people just ask for some honey when they find out. I don't mind giving it to them of course after payment is made.
Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless.
