It would seem from the last 5 or 6 posts that most info being given is for Bee Keeping. Good, if you live in a remote location and don't like neighbours or visitors.
When we moved here the house opposite had maybe 15 hives looked after by a local pensioner. He didn't live there but stayed in his own central village house with his extended family,one of them the Mayor and attended the hives daily suitably dressed for the job. When he died last year his grandson took over the hives and has increased these to 75 at last count. Yes the hives are 5 meters from the fence and he has put up a wall of corn stalks around the house.
The bees now use our pool as a watering hole and it was practically unusable this summer as it was always surrounded by a swarm. I got 8 stings at one time while trying to cut the grass with face and eyes swollen for days. I also discovered that the reason they use this house and garden for the hives is because the Mayors husband is allergic to them. (I'm all right Jack so stuff you).
After suffering them all this year including 2 holidays with relatives ruined I decided to do away with them and have imported a cure-all from overseas that will see them off next year.
There are numerous threads on here regarding Bee-keeping with good advice and prospective Bee-Keepers might be better looking there with a simple search.
Maybe when people start giving advice and links to grants for Bee-Keeping they should also include advice on caring for the rights and comforts of their neighbours. 5 meters means nothing when your being stung (thats why Bee-Keepers don't work in their swimsuits).
Now back to grants..........................
