What is the real risk to neighbors, and should I have additional insurance?
I’m not sure if people are just sensationalizing the issue, but I keep hearing that, if you keep a hive in a neighborhood, you have to warn your neighbors that they may get stung if the hive swarms. Is this a real risk? Or is this because people just want to have an issue to share? Also, is there a specific insurance that one would have to take into consideration? I am in Pensacola, Florida, USA.
Thanks, and, while nervous, I am excited about learning this new world of beekeeping. The flow hive is a phenomenal invention!
