Hi, my name is ... and I am a local bee keeper. My apiary is expanding and I am looking for a few select individuals to host an out yard. As you know, honey bees are an important part of our food chain and their very existence is being threatened blah, blah, blah.
Make it seem that hosting hives is a privlege, not doing you a favor.

Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
