I'm not being sued but am curious about possibility. I have talked with a couple people who have helped but wanted to broaden my feedback about the subject.
My question has been. Who offers Homeowners Insurance that covers bees. Not for selling Honey but if a neighbor or someone in the area gets stung and is allergic to Bee stings? I guess there could always be different reasons why someone would be stung. I live in a subdivision and lets just say for sake of argument my neighbor is mowing, a few bees head bump him as a warning and my neighbor freaks out and starts swatting or something and then they sting (Or come up with your own worse case scenario).
So I am curious how many people have heard or been through a lawsuit because a neighbor was stung etc... Or maybe is it worth trying to find Insurance? I know many here probably live on large lots/land etc and doesn't matter but mainly curious what my fellow keepers who live on lots in a subdivision do if anything?
I know some say not to tell your neighbors but I am in good standing with them, a few come over and offer a hand in the backyard when I need it. Infact 2 neighbors already saw the hives (No bees in it but...) The other neighbor, when mowing the yard can see into my yard through the fence as the fence isn't board to board (not sure what this style of fence is called) but if you look at an angle you can see the hives.
When I had Venomous snakes, they freaked but no one caused a problem, most just didn't come in lol. However Venomous snakes were not loose and flying around the neighborhood but having said that Bees are around even without my hives so they would have to prove it was mine but as I said, worst case scenario my neighbor is weedwacking, hits a rock and thumps the hive or catches the bees on a bad day... I don't know. I guess some of the stories I have read on here freak me out, someone is 30 feet away and is stung, few bees patrol the windows and doors lol. I'm not making this up.
If it was me I wouldn't worry about it but just wanted to ask what others like me do, if anyone has been sued or has had issues?
