Re: Unhappy Neighbors
Short answer, yes. Better question, why are your neighbors concerned? Have they had problems or is someone deathly scared of bees? How long have you had the bees there? I'm all for keeping the peace with neighbors so I'd compromise as well if the request is reasonable. Make sure to give them honey when you harvest, make sure they have a water source that doesn't involve your neighbor and minimize swarming.
I had some neighbors (1/2 to 1 acre lots) who were a little concerned about me keeping bees when I first started almost 10 years ago. Ironically some commented later that they're surprised they never see them though they know hives are yards away from their homes. The concern died down years ago and is now nothing more than, "I'm out of honey, when are you harvesting again?"
