Re: bee pasture shortages?
In NY I think it depends on where you are, but no one should complain when you put hives on your own property. If you are on a major rd. like I am rt20, it seems that everyone drops hives all over the place, I have had real problems finding locations that don't have bee's nearby. Also since the price of milk is up, dairy farmers are expanding like crazy, so they are renting up all the overgrown fields and planting corn and soybeans, this is also cutting into the amount of hives that you can put on a spot. If you have locus or bass wood in the woods it should be a fine spot. Also most beeks hide there bees in NY, so a good way to get an idea if bees are in the area is to watch somehting blooming and see if any bees show up. good luck
