Mowing around hive? Need advice soon!
Our bees & hive are supposed to be delivered this evening. (We just found out last night, didn't think we were going to get them until next spring.) We were going to locate the hive in the orchard, but the guy bringing them said you can't mow in front of the hive "in their flight path". We mow the orchard regularly. Some of the info we've read says you have to keep the grass & weeds down around the hive. I would like to know how other beekeepers handle this problem without upsetting the bees. Thanks for any hive location you can give me! Carla
