are there any stingless bees or similar that can be kept in the Netherlands? (zone 8b)
i only have a balcony se setting up a honey bee hive isn't a good idea, at most i would be 3 meters away from my door and right next to my neighbors balcony (seperated by a 2 meter high wall)
but stingless bees don't take up much space, don't sting (i assume their bite isn't venomous) and still give me honey and pollinate my plants, unfortunately they are tropical and won't survive our winter, as far as i can find. (importing would be tricky as well.)
is there another species of bee that is simple to keep, small and won't get me in a fight with the neigbors?
