Well, I got a surprise email from my HOA today. After my challenging them on 2 points:
1. How and why are my bees considered a nuisance?
2. Before I got bees I thoroughly checked the covenants and nowhere does it say anything about bees.
the email I got stated... "Consider the matter closed."
My bees can stay! I still plan on going to a board meeting and verifying the issue. Thank you for all the advice. I am quite surprised it was resolved this easily.
