bees and the Fourth of July

cauldeb(z6 VA)June 7, 2009

Okay, maybe no one has ever asked this question. Got our first bees in spring and they are doing fine. Every Fourth we and all my neighbors have big aerial fireworks displays. They are definitely loud.. What impact do you think firework noise will have on our bees that night?

Put your ear on the boxes and hear what happens.....they might not like it too much?

Tell us how loud they got.

I have one yard with sixty hives and a squirrel problem. I spent an entire afternoon blasting away with a twelve gauge and walking within inches of the entrances and never had and offer to sting... Blast away, I don't think they'll notice.
