appeasing the neighbors
I've had bees for several years; my neighbor decided to set up what looks like a box garden in his driveway; and bees are either being drawn to that or his garbage. Now I know the only thing I can do is set up a water source between my hives and his stuff; I have open water sources on my property but not in that area, and its an easy fix, but reality is that its not going to completely solve the problem because ten bees is likely a problem and they are always YOUR bees. I also seen him spraying his stuff to kill the bees on his property. I am also at least fifty feet off the property line and I am sure their are feral bees in the woods behind his house too (i've lost swarms and they ve gone somewhere). any suggestions from urban farmers? There are no legal issues; just want to get along and be left alone.
