OK, first, I can legally have bees. But my angst is if I tell my neighbors, that one of them may dislike the idea and would argue against me having them. I don't like the idea of not being a good neighbor - but I don't like the idea of someone telling me what I can do either.
...but bees, since they don't just stay on my property when foraging or swarming are beyond my property boundaries (FYI: I would do anything I can to prevent swarming).
I have an acre of land and have neighbors to the North, East, South and West. Where I would keep the bees is 65,30,73,362 feet away from the neighbor's property lines (respectively) and 187,245,233,342 feet away from each of their houses.
Should I let them know ahead of time? Or should I keep them and let them know next fall with some honey?
Thank you for your opinion!
