    Default new site

    Hi all, hope your keeping well.

    I have been offered a piece of land to keep some hives but have recently found out that 2 of the farmers within a 3 mile radius have been spraying their fields.

    I dont know what with or how often and at present im hitting a brick wall in finding out.

    So the question is, is it safe for me to put bees within a 3 mile area from the sprayed fields? Obviously with bees flying up to 3 miles (sometimes more) this means a huge restriction.

    What would be the general advice for bees and how close they can be to sprayed fields?
