Re: Hive Location Near Industries
I'm sure some of the more "green" beeks will disagree, but I don't see a problem with it. My best swarm trapping site is less than a mile from a large sewage treatment facility. Try a few hives and see. If they are all healthy next year, put more hives in that location. Besides, I bet IP isn't discharging anything nasty. Their pockets are awfully deep and the EPA is very fastidious.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
