    Default Backyard camp fire near hive.

    Hello all,

    We have a family backyard camp fire pit about 50ft from my new hive. Is that to close?

    Do the prevailing winds blow towards or away from the hive? And, you might want to consider moving this to "bee forum" or "Beekeeping 101"

    I have one in my yard about that close also, have not had a problem yet but I always make sure the wind is not blowing toward the hives when using it.

    I would think 50' would suffice but if not a piece of plywood or the like leaned against the hive for the evening would solve the problem.
