Re: TBH distances
The real answer to distance from the neighbors is - It Depends.
If you have only a couple of hives, and you are sure to keep attractive water available (so the bees don't go to the neighbors pools or fountains) 100 ft would be more than reasonable.
But there are situations where hives are within 20 ft of the neighbors without disturbing the peace.
How much space do you have to work with? If there are city/county/municipal rules where you live, what do those regulations say?
