Re: Apiary Layout/Location?
I currently have 30 hives sitting on a spot that is 50'x50' square. Of course it helps that there are thousands of acres of crops and woodland surrounding me. Bees forage a 3 mile radius if necesssry and that encompasses over 12,000 acres. Unless you are in a monoculture environment, there is forage for the bees and honey is inevitable. Doesn't mean the bees are going to put it all neat and tidy in the supers for you. Convincing them to do that is part of beekeeping.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
