As a newbee to the forum I have a question about the new pollinator box (without honey). I have a neighbor complaining about the location of my 5 hives being too close to his garage. He leaves the fluorescent light on and they come to it and bonk into it, and sting his little poodle dogs, and his wife got stung. We didn’t want grandma to get stung, so I said I would move the hives. I got stung in the process about 45 times and luckily I enjoy the near mushroom like experience of intense apitoxin…still don’t really want to do that again.
The hives are still at least 200ft from him and I offered to get him a new light to replace his fluorescent. Was thinking about putting a light and maybe some water on our side to attract them, so they don’t go to his garage…and then the Pollenator box arrived. Is there a way to use that to help cure this problem; Maybe put it near to the hives to attract stray bees that are not a part of the hives? Or farther away to give the stray ones a place to go?
Where do I put this bamboo straw pollenator box? And can it help in my grumpy neighbor situation? (I already brought him a gratuitous jar of honey)
