How To Fix The Bee Problem

Friday, January 11, 2013

This is so simple to resolve.  The bus stop is informally located near the beekeeper's home.  Have the bus stop at a home on either side of that lot.   

I kept bees for many years in a residential area and never had any problems.  Bees are very docile as long as they are not bothered.  I  had my hives within 10 feet of my neighbor's garden, I moved around the hives every week, and worked in my work shop within 15 feet of the hives....all without problems.   

It seems that someone wants attention in Signal Mountain.
