My crazy neighbor, and I mean that literally, has decided he doesn't like my bees. He's already called the police, and they told him that there's nothing illegal about keeping a hive. Now he's resorted to throwing moth balls over the fence. A half a dozen or so have landed under my hive. The hive sits about 2 feet above the ground, and I have left the screened bottom open for ventilation (It's hot!!). I've read putting moth balls directly into hive is bad, but will this attempt to kill my bees work?
