I am a beekeeper for only 2 months. I started 2 hives from 2 nucs transferred to the hives in July, then later I added deep on each hive so bees can collect honey in them.
Recently the guy to mows the lawn of my neighbor started complaining about bees stinging him, whenever he goes close to the hives with his big lawn mower. I tried to explain to him that it is obvious that whenever he is close to the bees with his loud mower, bees will get offended and will try to defend themselves.
I suggested that he mows the part of the lawn close to the hives last, but he didn't want to listen and understand.
He threatened that he will spray my hives with something to kill the bees on what I answered that he can't spray anything on my property.
Now I am concerned if there are ways to kill the bees so I won't know that he did it.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
