I am in the process of planting a small family orchard and am considering adding a bee hive to the list to pollinate my fruit trees. I am concerned about having the hive as I have 2 children and we seem to always have other children here as well. I am concerned about my kids getting stung but I am paticular concerned about a visiting child being stung and having an allergic reaction. Not just the financial consequences but the issue of someones child being injured or worse while in my care. I know this is a possibility anyway...but I would feel VERY responsible purposely having a hive on my property. I ran into a man sellling honey down the road, he lives about 4 miles away. I am hoping his bees will pollinate my orchard and later on when my kids are older and not running the yard all day I can have my hive. Any thoughts or advice? Am I being overly cautious?
