Highway between bees and orange groves
I know that bees can and will fly up to 2 miles to find forage, but does the noise and activity of a four lane divided highway prevent or limit their desires to cross such. I have some hives approximately 250 to 300 yards as the crow flies from such a highway. On the bees side of the highway there is some forage for them. Immediately on the other side of the highway there are acres and acres of orange groves. Will the highway cause any limitations on the bees from foraging there? Thanks for any input.
