Re: Attracting bees to fruit trees
It is my understanding that it is difficult for bees to communicate the location of a food source that is under 200 feet away from the colony. This has been related to me by several long-term beekeepers. Is it lore? I am not sure, but I can say that I do not notice my own young colony touching the honeysuckle within 50 feet of their hive. I'll accept or reject this as fact once I have more ample time to investigate.
