I'm not interested in the perfect crime
Years ago, when I first got the bee bug, my eldest was allergic, too, so I found a place away from our homeplace to keep them--the pasture where I was keeping some cows at the time. I fenced the hives off from the cows and it worked out fine. Nowadays, my eldest has kids of his own, so this time I'm keeping my hives outside my back door. Out-yards are common ways to keep bees and would guarantee your bees would not become your wife's problems.
