Re: Is backyard beehive feasible?
Taildragger, welcome to Beesource. This subject comes up quite often so search our site to find and read other threads. Best idea with an HOA is fly under the radar, like 50' AGL. Dont let anyone know you have them and I doubt you will have a problem. Make sure you have a copy of the bylaws in hand in case one of your neighbors figures it out and asks. Many municipalities restrict the number of backyard hives to two and a nuc unless you have some acreage so I would start there.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
