We are getting bee hives for our children to continue their study of entomology in 4-H. We were given a starter kit as a gift and I have ordered another hive because I have read you would be better off with at least two. I also was thinking if we fail we could bring them in the house and use them as end tables or night stands. lol
We live on eight acres in Southaven, MS. My first of many questions is how far from the road should I locate the hives to avoid having the bees killed when the city sprays for mosquitos. I don't have a clue what they spray with. I assume there is a standard chemical or hopefully a good rule of thumb to follow.
Thanks for your tolerance and I will sit back and read and learn in the shadows.
