I have a question that I've been searching for an answer to and can't find anything out there. I am planning on starting Beekeeping this Spring but before I do I need to ask this. I live in a rural area in Michigan on about 20 acres. Across the street from me is a Farm of about 2 or 3 hundred acres. The Farmer plants Corn, Soybeans and Wheat on a seasonal rotation. Not being a farmer myself I would assume that he uses different types of Chemicals like Fertilizer and Pesticides. The question is. Is being so close to this farm an issue for a beekeeper? I read all kinds of different articles about pesticides and bees and the affects of the pesticides. I'd hate to go through all the expense not to mention all the learning to find out this is a big problem. Please Help!
