One of my bee customers told me about his recent bus tours all over Europe & the UK. Him & his wife did 3 tours, I think from memory they were all around 10 day tours.
Because he was keen to get into bees, he looked out for bee hives everywhere the coaches went. He told me he didn’t see one hive. We often see beehives while touring around in Au.
I told him what @Dee said about beekeepers having to hide their hives from view through fear of theft.
