Re: Fireworks and Bees?
In my country we don't do 4th July but we have a different celebration involving fireworks on 5th November.
I've normally had around a dozen hives in the yard & we've always let off fireworks that night with the family, the bees are pretty close no issues. Long as we don't have any outdoor electric lights on to attract them out of the hives.
Should say at that time of year there's a good flow on and the bees are pretty contented.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
