Really interested in doing a small backyard hive, but a few questions.
About how far away from my house is needed/recommended for my hive? My backyard isn't huge, and I just wanna make sure that its okay to keep it relatively close to the house.
Secondly, I do have a couple of dogs, They're active fun-loving types but I want to make sure that the bees would be okay with the dogs running around nearby the hive, or if that would cause problems/stress that could be bad for the bees.
I would really like to make this work as I'm a stay at home father and would just love this to be my free time project, but I wouldn't do it if it's not practical.
